Topics to be covered:
-What encryption is and how it works
-How to encrypt files, emails, or your entire computer
-How to 'harden' your computer (how to secure it)
-What security culture is and how to implement it
-How to protect your privacy online and in real life
-How to publish, communicate, and browse the web anonymously
-How to deal with informants, infiltrators, provocateurs, etc.
-How to work with sources and leak documents/information
All participants will receive digital copies of the presentation materials. To help cover costs, participants are asked to bring $5 with them or donate whatever they feel is fair. Nobody will be turned away because they don't have money.
If you have a computer, you are highly encouraged to bring it. Flash drives and external hard drives would also be useful. A large portion of this workshop will be hands-on computer work. If you have extra computers, extension cords, power strips, blank CDs, flash drives, or external hard drives please bring them as well.
This workshop is targeted towards activists, journalists, and members of the general public.
