More questions on cyber security bill

The endlessly energetic Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security is hearing this afternoon from the Department of Home Affairs and the Defence Signals Directorate

It’s a chance for the agencies to respond to feedback on the cyber-security legislation the committee is considering. The bill does not give Home Affairs power to monitor what people in specified industries watch on Netflix but it does impose an awful lot of oversight on universities (CMM December 1 2020 and February 15). The point was politely made by HE representatives to the committee who explained that universities are on-board with the intent but suggested that the bill was a bit broad in how it applied to higher education (CMM July 12).
