(Reasonably) educated thread about the options global companies like Apple have going forward now the #aaBill will happen in Australia.

I’ll start with my assumptions then explain their options #Auspol

1. Company will not compromise its core business strategy. Eg: for Apple this is sell devices/storage that are guaranteed to be secure. To point they won’t let the FBI in.
2. If you sell a product in Australia that is *same* as your global product then any engineered vulnerabilities* will impact global product.

*Australia doesn’t want to use term “back door” so let’s call it malware.
Given these assumptions what can companies do? Three options in order likelihood.

(1) Create an “Australian” version of product that uses different encryption and is for want of a better word slightly disabled. So that any malware won’t impact global product.
(2) Pull out of Australian market altogether.

(3) Fight it tooth and nail in court because capitulating means you can’t guarantee integrity of global products.

In all three scenarios you protect global business.
What about purely Australian companies?

Well. You just won’t be able to guarantee service/product is rock solid secure. Because you literally won’t *know* due to secrecy clause.

So find another thing that’s great to put in brochures...?
