The new law also allows officials to approach specific individuals—such as key employees within a company—with these demands, rather than the institution itself. In practice, they can force the engineer or IT administrator in charge of vetting and pushing out a product’s updates to undermine its security. In some situations, the government could even compel the individual or a small group of people to carry this out in secret. Under the Australian law, companies that fail or refuse to comply with these orders will face fines up to about $7.3 million. Individuals who resist could face prison time.
Well, really the best way to proceed is act like EVERYTHING you send across the internet will be captured and inspected for crimethink. Most likely it has been for several years. Apple probably folded well before 2015 and has been secretly handing over anything the government wants for years.
Australia has nearly completed the circle back to it’s prison camp origins.
