Privacy & Security

We understand that online privacy and security is complex. No one should feel like they can’t protect themselves, their family, or their personal data in the digital world.  Cybersecurity and the technology used in security often can be confusing but we work to make these tools approachable for people of all levels of tech savvy.

Online Abuse: Mitigation & Survival

The Internet is a wonderful place where we can access almost any information in a moment’s notice. Many of us use it to stay in touch with colleagues, friends and loved ones around the world. Unfortunately, the opposite is often true: certain offenders will use it to stay in touch with victims via harassment, cyber stalking and leaking revenge porn.

We hope you never find yourself the target of any of this traumatizing behavior. But we want to be sure you know what to do to protect yourself ahead of time and know what to do if you ever find yourself in this position. Many women and minorities may find they are at a higher risk for this.

Vehicle-Based Surveillance Workshop

If you’ve ever wondered how to look for GPS tracking devices on a vehicle, or would like to learn more about the type of information which could be gathered from one, this workshop is for you.

This workshop will explore different techniques used by malicious actors to obtain vehicle-related information. This includes:

  • Tracking of a vehicle with a GPS device
  • Using apps and services such as OnStar to track vehicles
  • Discovering publicly-available information related to vehicles

Each of the offensive techniques demonstrated will be accompanied by counter-measures to help attendees better understand the steps they can take to defend themselves against these types of attacks.
