Security Expert: "Don't Waste Limited Resources On Something That Is Nothing"

Phil Kernick, director of the CQR cyber security consultancy firm, has a bit of an idea about online security. So when he told Pia Akerman at Australian IT over the weekend that the government's proposed internet filter is a waste of time and money, the government (and the rest of us) should probably pay attention.

It's an argument we've all made ourselves - the filter won't protect a single child, nor will it stop a single instance of child abuse from occurring. But hearing it from a respected security expert helps support the argument that the filter policy should be dumped.
