The Centre for Internet and Society would like to welcome journalists and human rights workers to attend a workshop on digital security. The workshop will be led by Pranesh Prakash, policy director at CIS and resident security expert. In this workshop, the participants will be provided hands-on training on how to assess security threats, how to protect sources, how to prevent others from snooping on private communications, and how to harden your computer and electronic devices' security. The training will focus both on understanding security, how it can mean different things in different situations, and the trade-offs involved, as well as on practical easy-to-use tools.

All attending are requested to bring their laptops, smartphones, and tablets.

Please mail pranesh AT cis-india DOT org if you wish to attend, or if you have any queries.

This workshop furthers CIS's work as part of the Cyber Stewards Network.
