Trainers Unite: Experience Exchange and Skill Building of Digital Security Trainers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

So, you also want to have a digital security training for your organization/community, how do you do it? How others do it? For what kind of audiences? What are you looking to protect?

This session wants to create an occasion for digital security trainers/promoters to gather, know each other, talk about their experiences and learn from others, whether you:
- are a digital security trainer
- have participated in some digital security trainings
- want to have training for your organization/community
are all welcomed to join.

We will invite trainers we know to introduce their special experience in their region or audience. (Pablo, Lobsang each 8 minutes)

We will also look at the trends by asking these questions (each 8 minutes):

  • In your career of digital security trainers, what trends are you seeing?

  • Are trainings sufficient for changing security behaviors? Or support is more important?

  • How do you do support? Share your experience and best practice

  • Trends in digital rights violations - how should trainers react and adapt?

In the end, we will take questions from the audience and discuss our takeaways. (12 mins)

We hope through this session, experienced/inexperienced trainers can connect, and together we look into the future of digital security trainings.
