Learn how to protect your privacy and defend your digital communications from government and corporate surveillance. This is a hands-on interactive workshop, so bring your phone and laptop!
We’ll start with a short presentation introducing threat modeling, encryption, and the current array of free and open-source tools recommended by EFF (EDIT: EFF updated their original Secure Messaging Scorecard to the following, more nuanced recommendations – https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/03/secure-messaging-more-secure-mess). Then we’ll break up into small groups to install these tools together and discuss related topics in depth.
(Do you already feel confident using PGP, OTR, Tor, Bitcoin, password managers, and/or other dimensions of digital security? We’d love your help sharing these skills as a facilitator! Please email me if you’re interested.)
