Digital risks and security for activists

Cases, tips, risks and a framework for when it’s safe to share information online


Dirk discusses what he’s learned about information security after working with activists and advocates for the last two decades. He looks at how our behaviours and the technologies themselves put us at risk, along with the dangers inherent in trusting our information with online services. He also provides a non technical framework for understanding when it’s safe to share information online. You can learn more about Dirk and his work on technology capacity building for grassroots organisations at Find him on twitter @fabrider.
