When's a backdoor not a backdoor? When the Oz government says it isn't

Just a ploy to circumvent the GDPR?

Unless governments find a way to get copies of the data before people exercise their "right to be forgotten" they are likely to find that the information they are after has been erased.

Kind of like hackers who delete/alter the log files to erase their tracks.

Could bills/laws like the one that's being considered in Australia just be a tactic to ensure they get around the GDRP?
