Australian Lawmakers Agree to Pass Sweeping Anti-Encryption Laws

The Infinite Brief
The main political parties in Australia have made a deal to pass controversial and sweeping laws granting authorities the legal powers to access encrypted communications.

The law would undermine cyber security for businesses by allowing the government to force the installation of back doors allowing for secret access.

The government has warned companies that they could face multi-million dollar fines if they fail to comply with its orders.
