The Internet Society of Australia has called on the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) to recommend a total rethink of the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill. Internet Society of Australia CEO, Laurie Patton, said his board and members are extremely concerned that the legislation, as currently drafted, simply won't achieve the Government's stated aims while constituting a serious threat to existing civil rights protections. At our appearance before the PJCIS the Society offered to assist the Committee and the Government by providing expert technical advice. At the Committee's request we have since provided a confidential supplementary report.
