Information Age, December 5, 2019

The opposition has tabled amendments to the Assistance and Access Act that it says will repair controversial encryption laws. Senator Kristina Keneally put amendments to the Senate on Wednesday that seek to limit the scope and power of the encryption bill.
Jared Ragland from the Business Software Alliance (BSA) was pleased to see encryption laws once again getting airtime in parliament.
“BSA is encouraged by the ongoing legislative reviews of the Assistance and Access Framework in Australia and efforts in the Australian Parliament to improve the Framework,” Ragland said. “We look forward to engaging the Australian Parliament further on the Framework and seeking an improved outcome for citizens, law enforcement, and the technology community.”
