Digital Security

Human rights defenders, journalists and people in positions of marginalisation or vulnerability are exposed to many threats and risks like state and non-state surveillance, repressive censorship, phishing, hacking, data loss.

They are more likely to be targeted by government or lateral surveillance, and the consequences of more broad threats like data breaches or network shutdowns are often more severe for them because of their location within society.

It is very important to equip them with knowledge and skills in digital safety and security. This will empower them to defend themselves against any digital security attack.
