Cyber expert doubts encryption law changes


A former head of the government’s Digital Transformation Agency has offered a bleak view about the impact of controversial new encryption laws.

“This kind of a law … changes things so much that it’s almost impossible to roll things back when they are in place,” Mr Shelter told ABC Radio on Monday.
