After reaching out for an explanation of the situation, the ACSC told ZDNet that its use of JavaScipt was consistent with the advice in the Australian Signals Directorate's Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents Mitigation Details document.

"I made that decision," ACSC chief Rachel Noble told Senate Estimates at the time.
"The advice that I made the decision on, was a proposal for Dr Dreyfus and Mr Drake to ... have a panel with Edward Snowden that was the first proposal. At that point my judgement was based on, I guess, a reputation of all of those speakers that they are known public advocates for unauthorised disclosure or the leaking of classified information outside of legitimate whistleblowing or lawful whistleblowing schemes."
Noble added the talks were not "consistent with the objectives of the conference which was actually about cybersecurity and helping Australians raise their awareness and technical knowledge about cybersecurity issues", and could express views not in line with Australian law, processes, and values.
