Helping you create a safe space in the digital world.
It’s not your imagination: the threat from hackers is rising.
But news reports about foreign attackers, surveillance, and security leaks are often sensationalized and over-broad, leaving you with the impression there is nothing you can do to keep yourself safe.
Digital Safe Space will strengthen your innate skills in recognizing threats and increase your capacity to avoid them online. Our workshops promote digital literacy, cybersecurity, and online privacy for individuals and organizations.
Digital Safe Space helps social justice activists, social change organizations and campaigns configure their technology in a safe and balanced way that protects them against hacks, attacks, and loss of access. Digital Safe Space helps build confidence in the privacy of your devices and the data they contain.
Digital Safe Space works with political campaigns to protect sensitive information while managing a flexible, secure workflow with campaign staff and volunteers. Digital Safe Space performs security assessments, runs workshops with campaign managers and designated staff, and offers ongoing consulting and recommendations as needed.
“We know when someone is standing uncomfortably close. Digital security is no different. We just need to hone our natural instincts.”
