Chill Out: Defining sustainable long term strategies for digital security success

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

"Digital security trainings" have become a fashionable subject at international conferences, and a service frequently requested by civil society organizations in a hope of quickly improving security outcomes . Despite training programs contributing digital security knowledge and consciousness,creating lasting change for most human rights defenders and civil society organizations takes a longer time and more effort than that. Each of our presenters has experience operating at the ground level with organizations and has developed methods to meet this challenge, offering holistic, longer term support that can be absorbed at the real pace of organizational change. We will share our different approaches from around the globe to "chilling out" in order to find readily achievable goals that build momentum and improve security outcomes over time, embedding digital security in the work of organizations rather than making digital security a task of its own. We will seek input from attendees on what practices they have seen be successful in their work and together in a small group format we will all co-develop some best practices for chilling out... and improving digital security one digestible bite of change at a time.
