Help! We are under digital attack! A peek behind the screens of digital security by rapid responders

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This interactive session is a collaboration of Digital Defenders Partnership, Front Line Defenders, Media Legal Defence Initiative, VirtualRoad.org, Access Now and a Hivos digital integrity fellow. We want you to leave the room with a better understanding of the process and possible facets of emergency support. We will give you a holistic view of the Emergency Response Ecosystem (Legal, infrastructural, psycho-social, etc. responses) and explore the interconnectedness of our work together with you.

Whether you are an activists, digital security trainer or expert, a company representative, funder, government representative, researcher or non-profit employee, this session will provide you with new resources for emergency response. What do you need in order to mitigate possible threats in the future? What questions do you have regarding digital threats? What do you need from other stakeholders in the room? We invite you to contribute your needs/ideas/questions and come to shared multi-stakeholder action.
