Who has access to your metadata? Can the government actually read your encrypted Whatsapp messages sent between you and your anonymous source? What does it mean to operate safely online in the post-Snowden world of data surveillance?
At the Edit's first event for 2019, we spoke data, privacy and encryption with tech and legal experts Veronica Scott (Minter Ellison), Peter Tonoli (Electronic Frontiers Australia) and Justin Warren (EFA). They coached us through techniques to understand the increasingly nebulous online world of metadata and Australia's controversial new encryption laws.
