Digital developments from Canberra 25

This week there’s major progress on privacy law reform, no progress on the online services’ esafety codes, a big tax change, and more. Oh, and some Chinese-made cameras were removed from government offices, while Woolworths installed more cameras in their supermarkets.

Here are the digital developments from Canberra I’ve noticed since the previous edition on 11 February.

Please let me know if I’ve missed anything, or if there’s any specific items you’d like me to follow.

Update 20 February 2023: I probably should’ve mentioned that the government has received the report of the Defence Strategic Review, but the report has not yet been made public. We only have the background information. The press release does not set out any timeline for the next steps. I’ll be interesting to see whether this government takes as long as the previous one to deal with this sort of thing.

If you’ve been finding this series of posts useful, please consider throwing a tip into the tip jar.
