We live in an era of mass surveillance, tech monopolies, and growing police and state powers to disrupt social movements. Activists need to learn basic precautions to protect their own information, as well as the security of others, especially those more vulnerable than them to government harassment and repression. This workshop will offer some basics on how to start the process of securing your phones and computers and protecting your communication. We explore basics of operational security, encryption, searching anonymously, and avoiding theft of your personal data. You do not need to know programming or have technical skills to take part in this discussion.
