Increase the security of your digital accounts and communications. We'll help you implement a good chunk of the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Surveillance Self Defence practices (https://ssd.eff.org/). This is a great workshop for activists, community organizers, lawyers, and anyone else who wants to increase their personal information security.
Bring your mobile, bring your laptop and we'll help you get set up!
We'll focus on the following topics:
- Safer mobile communications (chat, messaging, telephony)
- Password managers (1password)
- VPNs and more-secure web browsing
- Two-Factor Authentication
- How to encrypt and decrypt your emails with PGP / GPG
- Encrypting your phone and hard drive
- Avoiding phishing
