Concern Over ‘Rushed’ Critical Infrastructure Law

New rules for critical infrastructure covering a broad range of tech firms are being “rushed” without proper scrutiny being applied, according to a number of submissions to government.
The Software Alliance, whose members include global platform providers like Adobe, Slack, Salesforce and Oracle, also shared these concerns.
“Given the importance and potential impact of these changes, BSA is concerned that the government has not allocated sufficient time to fully consult on these changes. We respectfully recommend that the Australian government provide adequate opportunities for further consultation as the legislation and associated policies are considered particularly on whether and how to address cloud computing and data-related services under this proposal,” the Software Alliance said.
