Tech for Social Activism

Building a security practitioner’s toolkit for social revolts

None
In the past years we’ve witnessed revolutions across the world. From Ecuador to Chile, through Colombia and Perú, people have taken to streets and mobilized against structural violence, inequality, corruption, and failed governments. In this workshop, Latin American information security activists share lessons learned in the streets and on devices for supporting social justice movements, and activists from other latitudes help build collective knowledge. After speakers share experiences, participants respond to the question: What should security practitioners have in a toolkit when revolutions come? Participants fill in a “Kanban”-like board with their resource wishlist for a security practitioner’s toolkit for social revolts. These resources may already exist or need to be developed. The list may include documentation of processes/tools, access to technical infrastructure, connections to practitioners from other disciplines, medicinal herbs, or psychosocial support. After ideation, participants vote on the top resources needed for the toolkit.
