Event description

Description

Also known as Friends don't let friends SMS, Phones(ecurity)4U, or The revolution will be encrypted, this workshop is an accessible and practical introduction to all things security-of-the-phone. Whether it's day to day social life, tweeting and political organising from your smartphone, or on an action with a burner, we'll work through some of the simple ways to upgrade your information security, and that of your friends and comrades, on mein handy.

Background horrors: We live in the most highly surveilled country in the world, with a sophisticated intelligence agency called GCHQ tapping all internet traffic in an illegal program called Tempora, undercover cops infiltrating our spaces, and a Home Office minister determined to outlaw end-to-end encryption (both ridiculous and mathematically impossible). We need to be increasingly savvy about how we use our phones, and what channels we use to communicate, organise, resist. But it's also well boring, so let's figure it out together!

All welcome, whatever your experience level. We'll have a safer spaces policy in play so no funny business please.



This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival 10-16 June 2017
