Help We Are Under Attack! A peek into the community of rapid responders

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

This interactive session is facilitated by a group of Rapid Responders that provide time critical support to at-risk organizations and individuals. Our organizations take a holistic approach to digital security. In order to effectively respond to Internet emergencies, all responses must encompass physical, legal, infrastructural, and emotional safety. Representatives from Access Now, the Digital Defenders Partnership, Front Line Defenders, Media Legal Defence Initiative and Greenhost will participate. There will be a short introduction, of the organizations, and in which we discuss briefly about the different ways of providing emergency support. Each organization will be seated in one section of the room, and attendees will have a chance to join the group of one organization. They will have a chance to ask questions about the organization and its work, as well as discuss in small groups. The first rotation will last 8 minutes. After rotation one, attendees will be able to move to the next table that interests them. There will be six rotations, so enough for all individuals to visit all the tables. At the end of the rotations, we will all join together again and have a short discussion, based on feedback from participants.
