ISOC-AU joins data retention implementation experts group

By

The Internet Society of Australia (ISOC-AU) is joining an experts group set up to advise on the implementation of the Data Retention Act.

A joint government-industry implementation working group has been formed to deal with the Data Retention Act, and that working group in turn formed an experts group as a source of technical input from an industry perspective.

ISOC-AU has accepted an invitation to join the experts group.

"The Internet Society will provide technical background and an industry perspective on the implementation of the data retention obligations, in particular as it affects small to medium sized ISPs," said CEO Laurie Patton.

He suggested that while the largest ISPs have the resources to cope with the introduction of the scheme, smaller players could be challenged by the changes.

“We have created a Special Interest Group for our ISP members and we will be liaising with them to ensure that they are aware of their responsibilities under the legislation," Patton said.

"We will also be seeking their input as we provide technical advice and assistance to the Attorney-General's Department who will oversee the implementation process."

Patton recently said "The Internet Society of Australia believes the data retention laws will prove a costly intrusion into our lives with doubtful benefit in the fight against terrorism," but in announcing ISOC-AU's participation in the experts group explained "While we have previously exercised our right to express our concerns about the Data Retention Bill we also acknowledge that it is our responsibility to provide the Government with input on behalf of our ISP members."
