Re: Australia won't back away from data retention plan


Privacy impact assessment on data retention released

by Simon Breheny on October 11, 2012 in Rule of law, Technology and online rights
Finally, some detail on data retention! A privacy impact assessment relating to the proposed reforms to the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 has been released, which sheds light on Attorney-General Nicola Roxon’s plans to establish an online surveillance regime.

The document was prepared and handed over to the Attorney General’s Department in December last year. And the government didn’t volunteer publication of the assessment – it’s only after a successful freedom of information request that the report has seen the light of day.
