What we're about

Learn how to stay safe, private, and secure online. A CryptoParty is free, public and fun. People bring their computers, mobile devices, and a willingness to learn! In the time of the event people will learn and teach how to use basic cryptography tools. CryptoParties are decentralized global events that are organized to answer questions and instruct people on technology & privacy. CryptoParties are always free to attend, public, commercially and politically non-aligned and absolutely against sexual harassment and discrimination. There are no dumb questions, you do not need to know anything about this subject, nor do you even need to bring a computer or phone. However that will help you get the most of it.

Cypurr Sessions: NYC, Tech, & Protest (5/4/2019)

Brooklyn Public Library - Central Branch Info Commons Lab

Nowadays, the world is just one click away, but there’s so much going on in your backyard! Come on by this Cypurr Session on May 4th @ 2 PM, where we’ll talk about some local cybersecurity issues in the five boroughs. From Brooklyn tenants subjected to facial recognition, to Amazon workers in Staten Island, we’re looking at issues where New Yorkers need to work together. Per usual we will also be answering your questions as well discussing harm reducing tech alternatives! The CyPurr Collective is a group of some tech-minded folks who are very jazzed about cybersecurity, cats, and helping folks out with their digital dilemmas. We offer workshops for activists, journalists, educators, and everyday folks who want to up their encryption game!
