When & Where
ISC & OpenITP
The ISC Project provides advanced, sustained information security assistance to civil society organizations, independent media and human rights activists in countries where free expression, journalistic reporting, online communications and advocacy are critical to societal liberalization and development but potentially risky to personal safety. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
OpenITP provides developers of open source anti-surveillance and anti-censorship tools with diverse type of support. We believe circumvention tech tools are essential to enable anonymous, secure, and unrestricted communication on the Internet.
