Read the report yourself - it is unique in its sort. I am pretty happy with the @internetsociety@twitter.com enabling this study. It is an important contribution to the encryption debate. (10/9 - cheating with the numbering here)

The conclusion of the report is quite simple: "TOLA poses a significant risk of
future net economic harms for Australia’s economy, with likely adverse spillovers
abroad" (9/9)

Since the economic adverse effects from encryption-impacting-law is significant there should be a compelling case why the benefits outweigh the costs. (8/9)

Being trained a scientist I have little patience for sentences like "lack of empirical evidence, however, is not evidence of a lack of an effect" - however the argument that these encryption-impacting-laws cause a spilling effect is extremely compelling. (7/9)

A tweet from Twitterverse: 

The economic impact of these laws is hard to assess because the veil of secrecy that surrounds the implementation of these encryption-impacting-laws. Non-disclosure is a feature of these laws. That is not only an economic issue but also a civil rights issue. (6/9)

Putting the breaks on the security mechanism that are needed for a safe digital environment will have an adverse economic effect - trillions of dollars globally. (5/9)

I know, you think that happens anyway because of databreaches. But we should all act to make sure to protect ourselves from databreaches - and encryption and zero-trust architectures are a good way to make that happen. (4b/9)

Doing business in an environment where government mandated backdoors are a possibility reduces trust and the brand images of the companies that operate in that environment. (4/9)

A tweet from Twitterverse: 

The mechanism at work is the business uncertainty that is increased when the (cyber) security mechanism is undermined through the undermining of encryption and the reduction of trust that are caused by the TOLA's notices. (3/9)

A tweet from Twitterverse: 

The report doesn't quantify the economic harm precisely but it is clear that the law will produce significant (multiple billions of dollars) spillover effects to the Australian economy alone. (2/9)

The @internetsociety@twitter.com sponsored the Law & Economics Consulting Associates (LECA) to perform an economic impact analysis of the Australian laws that weaken encryption (the TOLA act)

I wonder if that positivity is related to a commission from the insurance companies.

Last year these very important paintings were stolen in the Netherlands on two seperate occassions by the same thief. He is in jail now, as is the buyer of the Van Gogh. The paitings are still missing. But I'm positive they will turn up. Very positive...

🧵- on the economic impact of government restrictions on encryption.

RT @JoeBeOne@twitter.com

Given the increased prevalence of governments messing with encryption in various ways, ISOC is happy to share some research today on the economic impacts of messing with encryption, focusing on the first to legislate, Australia.
