Internet privacy could be under threat if the federal government adopts the recommendations of a proposed National Security Inquiry.
The National Security Inquiry, a discussion paper released by the Attorney General’s Department, states that internet service providers should be required to store online user activity for a period of two years.
Doctor Sean Rintel, board member of the EFA(Electronic Frontiers Australia) claims that the proposed National Security changes are a threat to civil liberties and privacy.
He says that the biggest concern surrounding the proposed security expansion is that intelligence agencies will be given the power to monitor and store everyone’s personal information with reduced accountability and no warrants.
