Overwhelmed by indiscriminate surveillance, digital harassment, or security leaks of personal identification? You are not alone! Our cryptoparties are a space for people of all technical skills to share skills and learn from each other about online privacy protection.

Being able to communicate safely and privately with friends and family is part of the foundation of all our lives, so it’s also a key skill for using the Internet. This month, we’ll be going over easy ways to talk, chat, and email securely online—it’s always good to review the tools and habits that our digital security depend on, especially with the recent Signal Desktop flaws and the e-Fail email exploits.

After our main discussion and current events, we’ll be breaking out into groups to focus on:

  • secure messaging and chat applications like Signal and Riot
  • Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) email encryption

Come by and talk with us about all these topics; we’d love to hear your thoughts!

The CyPurr Collective is a group of tech-minded folks who are jazzed about cybersecurity, cats, and helping others out with their digital dilemmas. We offer workshops for activists, journalists, educators, and anyone who wants to learn more about bein’ safe on the Net.
