-Cybersecurity for Activists-
The purpose of this workshop is to help members of marginalized communities, particularly artists and activists, to develop online self-defense tools to improve their own safety and privacy on the web. Through this, we are attempting to reclaim agency over our spaces, lives, and communities, both online and offline. We will cover basic “low-tech” security techniques related to one’s online presence, as well as techniques to counteract cyber harassment and online attacks (legal recourse, damage-control, self-care). This introductory workshop will not cover deeper cybersecurity concerns such as government surveillance and the gathering of information by corporate entities.
