Australian Intelligence Agency ASIO Claimed That Chinese Surveillance Cameras Posed a “Cybersecurity” Threat to the Country

Sky News host Sharri Markson says the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation “knew” the Chinese cameras were a “cyber security” threat to Australia. “It is shocking because we know – ASIO is our top spy agency.

Sky News host Sharri Markson says the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation “knew” the Chinese cameras were a “cyber security” threat to Australia. “It is shocking because we know – ASIO is our top spy agency, ASIO did not have these cameras in their offices, they weren’t in the home-affairs department, they knew that they’re a cyber security threat,” Ms. Markson told Sky News host Paul Murray. “They’re a cyber-security threat for two reasons, one is Chinese companies have to abide by the Chinese national security law, so if the government demands they hand over data they have to do it. “Secondly, because they can act as surveillance operations.”
