"LevelUp: Building a Digital Security Trainer Network" 
ID: 224 — Nicolas Sera Leyva (Training Programs Manager, ICT & Latin America - Internews) 
LevelUp is a living project that supports individuals worldwide providing digital safety training and education, working to create a thriving global network of digital security trainers who are able to share knowledge, experiences, and resources with other. Over the past year, the project has taken major steps in its evolution, moving from merely an online repository of trainer-created, Creative Commons curricula and teaching modules, to becoming a more vibrant and connected network of global practice. This project demo will look at the challenges associated with building a network around a cross-organizational community resource, the lessons learned, and how those outcomes are reflected in the brand new, long awaited LevelUp project website.

USABLE connects communities world-wide with leading UX experts and digital security tool developers through Tool Feedback Trainings to solve real problems, build better tools, and create lasting, re-usable user personas for others to incorporate. After bringing these stakeholders together for an intense 4-day UXForum in early 2016, USABLE will launch the UXFund to target small grants to user-driven usability and accessibility improvements for digital security tools. 

"The Secure Communications Framework: Combining Impact with Adversary Capability and Motivation"
ID: 159 — Tim Sammut (Fellow, Mozilla and Ford Foundation)
The Secure Communications Framework helps security non-experts determine a safe set of tools and practices given what they know about their work. The SCF was created for human rights researchers but has been released into the public domain for adaptation by anyone. This session will provide an overview of what the SCF is and is not, and how best to adapt it for your situation.
