Description

IOActive invites you to the June edition of HACK::SOHO, a monthly event at our central London office. Join fellow hackers, tech heads, enthusiasts, and visionaries for food, cold beer, and hot cybersecurity talk.

This edition will take place on Thursday the 27th of June and will feature Eva Galperin, Director of Cybersecurity and Head of Electronic Frontier Foundation’s (EFF’s) Threat Lab.

EFF has been campaigning for individual rights in the digital age since 1990, and for the past 10 years, Eva has been a part of it. She blames her parents for her interest in computers and the Internet, saying “I was raised by nerds.


Eva’s work is primarily focused on providing privacy and security for vulnerable populations around the world. To that end, she has applied her background in both political science and technology to everything from organizing EFF's Tor Relay Challenge, to writing privacy and security training materials (including Surveillance Self Defense and the Digital First Aid Kit), to publishing research on malware in Syria, Vietnam, and Kazakhstan.


During her remotely given talk, “Privacy and Security for Journalists,” Eva will discuss the following questions:

  • Why do you need digital privacy?
  • Why do you need digital security?
  • What tools should you use?
  • Why are tools not enough?


Engage in the discussion with Eva, ask questions, learn new things, and network, all while enjoying drinks and music.

The bars open at 18:00, the food arrives at 18:15 and the talk will start at 19:00. Don't be late! :-)

Cheers,
The IOActive Team
