Event description
This workshop will help you create a plan on how to protect yourself both online and offline. The workshop will be in English and Spanish.

About this Event

Social Activists and Journalists both research, organize and communicate online, making them vulnerable to various forms of surveillance or digital attacks. Threat modeling is a great way to learn how to think about what you want to protect, who you want to protect it from, and other key questions to keep yourself and those around you safe. Before you start picking tools or solutions at random to protect yourself, it’s important to take a step back and examine your entire ecosystem, understanding the real threats you (and/or your community) face. Because let’s be honest trying to protect all your from everyone can be overwhelming.

Join us on October 24 @ 6:00pm at the People’s Forum  and find out how to make your own threat model, which you can use to create a roadmap to protect yourself and others.

Threat Modeling

This workshop will touch on both online and offline security concerns, and show you how to make a plan to protect yourself whether you are an activist, journalist or concerned citizen. Topics will include:

* What is threat modeling and how do you start making a plan towards privacy

* We will discuss the “I don’t have anything to hide” mindset, and review information you may want to “protect”

* Who are we “protecting” our information (and other assets) from

* What questions to ask to identify assets, threats, and consequences.

* What you can do to start learning how to protect yourself and your networks

Plan to network and meet other individuals working on digital security, digital rights, and other comrades

RSVP soon, as space is limited!

Rompe el miedo :)

¡yo te cuido, tu me cuidas! una serie de consejos para enfrentar riesgos en grupos activistas

Cada vez son más las personas que se unen a grupos activistas por diferentes causas respondiendo a un llamado necesario de atender: el contexto mundial y las coyunturas exigen tomar posiciones críticas frente problemáticas que, generalmente, afectan a minorías o grupos poco representados. El cuidado de las comunidades y grupos de los que hacemos parte es parte vital de nuestros activismos. En la era de la vigilancia masiva y constante abusos por parte de autoridades plantamos un taller para analizar nuestros riesgos en el quehacer diario y durante actividades puntuales.

El análisis de riesgo, o Threat modeling en inglés, se trata de examinar a qué estamos expuestas, nuestra situación y hacernos preguntas como: ¿qué queremos proteger, de qué lo queremos proteger, cuáles son las consecuencias de fallar en nuestras protocolos de protección y seguridad?

Acompáñenos el próximo Octubre 24 a las 6 y comparta con diferentes entrenadores, facilitadores y activistas en un lugar para analizar, estudiar, reconocer y compartir diferentes tácticas de seguridad física, psicosocial y digital, así como prácticas de documentación y verificación de información; compartiremos guías y recursos. Esto es un espacio para crear y aprender entre todas las personas asistentes.
