Portland's Techno-Activism Third Mondays, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF), will host this event:

Privacy Workshop Series: Part II - Why Privacy Matters

From the Organizers:

Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

In this session, AJ Rice will discuss how a lack of privacy affects us as individuals and as a society. Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide.

After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise in threat-modeling geared at helping attendees better understand the individual risks posed to them by different types of surveillance.

This is Part II of a special three-part privacy workshop in June. If you miss part I, you’re still more than welcome to attend this session:
