Australia's MP's a security risk changing IT policies

So what are the colonialist rebels up to in the British penal colony called Australia?

For one, at law, they've detached themselves from the motherland (the United Kingdom) and decided to make up laws without something called due process thereby committing treachery (a life in prison sentence) with regards to Australia's founding legal document called the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act or more commonly referred to as 'The Constitution' for short, but that's beyond the scope of this post.

The focus on is on security of communications with regards to their work, that being governing the plebs of this land.

In I.T. (Information Technology), government, corporate and business circles secure communications is of paramount importance.

There are a few companies whose name is synonymous with security and encryption where BlackBerry comes to mind with regards to email and secure profiles disassociating work from personal data / information on the device.

In 2016, the DoJ (Department of Justice) had a communications breakdown where staff were unable to communicate via the 'secure' internal email system.

The staff then decided to flaunt security policies and transfer legal, sensitive and confidential documents via external public (read not so secure) email systems the likes Hotmail, etc.

As a result of this action, they did not lose their job but rather were the proud recipients of a 'please don't do it again' chat and not even a warning.

Roll back the clock a couple of years where the government had a secure communications I.T. policy which implemented the services of the Canadian company, BlackBerry.

In the real (corporate, business, taxpaying slave) world when a business has a policy or procedure for keeping company and client data secured where if this policy is breached by an employee the threat of one's employment being terminated is very real.

Not so in 'government' circles.

No government employee got the 'sack' for exposing client data over the not so secure medium called the internet.

It did not take long for MP's to 'rebel' and 'complain' that the BlackBerry phone they were issued for work purposes was "too restrictive" as the MP's were not able to visit social media sites and use other apps during work time (read at the expense of taxpayers).

Once again in the 'real world' many companies employ the policy where if one is using company resources for private use, (e.g. private email on work computers / work time) the company has every legal right to terminate that person's employment.

Not so in 'government' circles.

A simple analogy could be:

The spoilt children cracked a 'hissy fit' that they could not play on their phones during class time, so they told the teacher to get stuffed and went straight to the principal and told the principal to hand out iPhones.

On the flip side,

in Victoria, the migrant youth from Africa is on an escalating crime spree growing exponentially over the last three years, where violent home invasions result in people being crippled for life, or in the example of a pregnant mother being kicked in the stomach repeatedly resulting in a miscarriage as a result of violence inflected upon her,

the MP's do NOTHING to change the laws that are for "peace, order and good government".

So, (officially) the people in 'government' are being employed (by the masses) to do a job, that being to represent the people to make laws for 'peace order and good government'.

So what are YOU going to do with this failure of governance with regards to:

·         YOUR private, personal or confidential data being shared over unsecured medium, or
·         NO action regarding incarceration or deportation of violent imported criminals that destroy families.

This country is truly run as a penal colony by law makers sitting in their ivory towers, immune from society's woes making laws purely for the benefit of themselves, their 'brotherhood' and their corporate brethren.

Since the people take NO ACTION it sends a clear message to the governing bodies that the people are quite content with the 'government's' decision to import migrant trash which later beats the people senseless AND gets away with it.
