The Online Safety Bill 2020: Protecting Adult Victims of Cyber Abuse

journal contribution
posted on 2021-01-01, 00:00 authored by Marilyn McMahonMarilyn McMahon, Vicki HuangVicki Huang
The 2015 civil penalties scheme
was limited to dealing with the online safety of children and, in 2018, it was amended to regulate image-based abuse of adults and prohibited/illegal online content. If the current Online Safety Bill is passed, it will bestow the eSafety Commissioner with a new power to act upon the cyber abuse of adults. It will also consolidate the existing regulatory framework by adding instant messaging services, in-game communications, and conduits – such as search engines – to the social media services and ISPs who currently may be required to take down or block access to abusive or prohibited material.
