Security Tools for Activists and Journalists (sponsored by Google)

Ramya Raghavan and Jamie Albers

Google will host a training workshop on security tools for candidates, campaigns, activists and journalists. The workshop will be co-hosted by members of the Google and Jigsaw teams and cover products like Jigsaw’s Outline (which makes it easier for news organizations to set up their own virtual private network) and Shield (which helps independent sites defend themselves from DDOS attacks), as well as Google’s Advanced Protection Program. In addition, Google will provide security keys to all workshop attendees, as well as guidance on how to implement them.
