Australians must choose whether to opt out of the federal government’s controversial My Health Record system by 31 January. Data security and privacy concerns have prompted a number of people in the technology sector to opt out of the system, including Freelancer CEO and founder Matt Barrie, who says the government has done an "abysmal job" of protecting Australians’ privacy. Cyber security expert Vijay Varadharajan has also chosen to opt out, although Cyber Security Research Centre CEO Rachael Falk has opted in.
