A local digital rights community group in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF) will host this event:
Worried that the WWW has you in its Web? Overwhelmed by indiscriminate surveillance, digital harassment, or security leaks of personal identification? You are not alone!
Join the CyPurr Collective for a cryptoparty at the Brooklyn Public Library. We’ll talk about easy steps you can take to secure your data, like password managers and two-factor authentication, and tools you can use to protect yourself from surveillance. Depending on everyone’s interests, we can go into more detail on the workings of Tor or PGP and best practices for using them safely. Since digital security affects all of us in different ways, we believe each of us has something to contribute to the conversation—everyone is welcome. Bring your laptop or device, or just come to listen and learn.
The CyPurr Collective is a group of tech-minded folks who are very jazzed about cybersecurity, cats, and helping folks out with their digital dilemmas. We offer workshops for activists, journalists, educators, and everyday folks who want to up their encryption game!
This event is free and open to the public.
