Digital Security Training for Human Rights

Description

Recent revelations of police surveillance of 11 journalists in Quebec and dozens of Indigenous activists in Canada demonstrate the precarious nature of digital communications, yet many journalists and human rights workers do not take measures to ensure digital security. Canadian Journalists for Free Expression will hold a free, full-day workshop highlighting the risks and practical ways to strengthen digital security. In addition to training 80 journalists and human rights workers at the event, a series of brief video tutorials will be available after the workshop as a resource for participants and the broader public.
