The Australian reports on comments by IT security expert Eugene Kaspersky that mandatory breach notification would "ruin" police investigations. Kaspersky’s comments came days before Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus's announcement of the government’s plan for mandatory breach notification laws, the report states. “Exposing the information to the public is good but bad at the same time. It's good that you make your customers aware of their situation but the negative is that you will ruin any investigation,” Kaspersky said, adding, “There has to be a balance, and this balance has to shift in favour of the police investigation.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
