Fellow Meetup Data Privacy PDX is hosting a free workshop on data privacy tools for activists, led by Greg Stromire. This is not a PDXTech4Good sponsored event, but we highly recommend checking it out. Space is limited, so RSVP by visiting their meetup page today!
Data privacy is important to everyone, but is felt even more keenly by those who advocate for causes that can be controversial. Here in Portland, everyone has something they are passionate about, and we often spend our time and energy supporting a good cause. With privacy concerns being very real for many participants in these causes, organizers must be prepared to provide better privacy protections for the communications and data that are related to their efforts.
This workshop is to introduce foundational data privacy strategies and teach easy solutions for helping activists protect the privacy of those they engage with and themselves.
Greg Stromire will be hosting the workshop and will direct the conversation based on the priorities of attendees, but likely topics will include:
• Environment For Privacy: Why is Privacy Essential; Privacy, Security, & Anonymity; Privacy Law
• Privacy for Communications: Messaging; Email; Voice
• Securing Your Devices: Mobile Devices; Personal Computers
• Protected Internet Use: HTTPS; Using VPNs; Best Practices Online
• Data Storage for Private Data: Encrypted Portable Devices; Cloud Storage; Individual Files
This special 2-hour Data Privacy PDX workshop is free to attend and light refreshments will be provided.
