Digital Security in Hostile Urban Environments

(90mins) 18:00 BST & 18:00 EST

This session builds on the fundamentals to bring in more advanced information security topics. It will go into the technical details of mobile security, and look at the privacy and security settings within different operating systems including those built for security such as Tails. We’ll identify who has visibility on different networks, and how this changes when using VPNs and the Tor Browser.

Participants will also get the chance to learn about additional tools and techniques to help increase the security of your research methods.
