Australian Centre For Cyber Security

In 2015 the Federal Government passed metadata retention laws in which all telecommunications company were required to retain customer metadata for two years and submit it to the government, with no warrant needed on the government’s behalf. A legal loophole discovered that some companies weren’t required to collect and store the data. However from this every telecommunications company will be required to store and hand the data over. What is metadata? What does this mean for our privacy?  Dr Jai Galliot from the Australian Centre for Cyber Security joined us on the Daily to answer our questions.
