The Collaboration on International ICT Policy for Eastern and Southern Africa (CIPESA) in partnership with Outbox, a Kampala based tech hub are hosting a workshop aimed at building digital rights knowledge as well as the digital security and capacity of human rights defenders, media, vulnerable women organisations in Uganda.
Despite the importance of digital security and privacy for human rights defenders in carrying out their work, the development of effective digital security strategies still present a numerous challenge. Human rights defenders have to contend with an ever shifting landscape of technologies and threats, limited understanding of behavioral factors and the lack of customisation for a number of the tools, among others.
The one day workshop will be hosted at Outbox on the November 29, 2017 and is aimed at targeting human rights defenders, software developers, media and other civil society actors. Use this link to register.
