From the Organizers:
Hackers Next Door is an open-to-the-public information security and social technology conference featuring presentations by the best of the tri-state area’s cybersecurity trainers, privacy rights advocacy groups, activist networks, and their constituencies.
The two-day conference is a unique opportunity for anyone interested in protecting themselves online to participate in a skill-sharing and educational convergence where they can meet one another, compare notes with peers and colleagues, and learn practical techniques from the region’s top cybersecurity instructors, legal experts, and experienced activists.
For community organizers and movement builders, Hackers Next Door offers a weekend of hacking demonstrations, “State of the Movement” briefings, legal primers, know-your-rights training, technical workshops, and political strategy brainstorming opportunities in a kinetic environment.
By enhancing cybersecurity training for everyone and increasing public awareness of digital civil liberties issues, Hackers Next Door gives invited speakers a chance to showcase and workshop their educational methods and materials to and with an audience of like-minded and impassioned community organizers so that we can all learn from one another’s experience and perspective.
