Malware detection is on its way out. Evidence shows that detection-based security solutions --such as antivirus-- are obsolete. Meanwhile, the effects of malware-borne activities are on the rise. Malware works... and it does very well for criminals and governments wanting to perpetrate human rights violations. This situation demands new ways of thinking if the outlooks of digital security, privacy, and personal data protection are ever to improve. We hope to illustrate and inspire people related to human rights organizations in the use of software hygiene, a radically different approach moving away from malware detection. Software hygiene aims to ensure malware-free operations wherever personal devices are in use. Join us to learn why it works, its potential, and how it helps individuals and organizations that need to avoid the high-cost and complexity of big data SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) solutions.
