The demand for in-person digital security workshops is increasing. Many of these workshops are inspired by the CryptoParty format, which emphasizes the importance of making these gatherings public and free. The CryptoParty movement provides a decentralized opportunity to demystify security technology & approaches while also providing space to implement those practices and approaches in a supportive environment. These gatherings explore the fundamentals of building your own personal security framework in ways that make participants feel accompanied and supported. But are these gatherings working towards building a sustainable digital security culture? Is the focus of personal digital security neglecting systemic issues? In this participatory and collaborative session, we want to explore best practices and challenges in organizing these kinds of events. This includes targeted and non-targeted outreach, creating safe space, how to address community agreement violations, building capacity while organizing events, and re-framing methods to focus on empowerment and agency rather than fear and intimidation. Come with stories to share and ideas that incorporate fun and joy in this work. We will edit the CryptoParty wiki for others outside this session to follow along.
