Information Security for creative folks

February 2, 10:00am - 12:00pm EST. Hosted at Friends Work Here


About this FieldTrip

Lots of important information is on your computer and in the cloud. Keeping it private and secure is really important.

Security doesn’t have to be overwhelming and scary!

In this hands-on session, you’ll learn about what’s important and what’s not, risk assessment (security folks call this “threat modeling”), and we’ll help you set up good password practices, two-factor authentication and use a security key.

I’ve been a professional software engineer for 20 years. Recently, I have trained journalists and progressive political activists on personal digital security.

Bring your computer, smartphone, tablet and power cord. A limited number of security keys will be available but if you have one handy, bring that too.
