Building Inclusive Community Based Digital Security Programs

The session will be an interactive workshop encouraging people to think critically about the kinds of digital security support that works for them, meets their needs and their communities.

Many of us agree that digital security support is broken. Traditionally, it’s been focused on parachuting (mostly Western) trainers into contexts they know nothing about, to focusing on short term fixes. What have we all been doing about it? And what can we learn from each other? The workshop will include various case study based activities, as a way of helping people build out an inclusive program design.

We’ll use the case studies to introduce key findings from research conducted over the past year by The Engine Room on what healthy digital security support looks like. The session will encourage participants to think through the steps involved in building holistic and inclusive digital security programs.
