Now that Brooklyn is no longer buried under snow, Hacks/Hackers will be bringing a digital security installfest to NYC Resistor on April 4th, 6:30PM. Hacks/Hackers brings journalists (hacks) and technologists (hackers) together to explore how to use technology to find and tell new stories and how to filter and visualize all the information around us everyday.
Our Hacks/Hackers hosts will introduce the special security challenges facing journalists, then we’ll break up into workshop tables with volunteers to cover specific tools and topics such as:
- How to prevent doxing via social media best practices and data removal
- Password managers
- Different kinds of two-factor authentication and how to choose the right one for you
- Signal, WhatsApp and other alternatives to phone calls and regular text messaging
- Plus other topics based on the interest of attendees
NOTE: Although this even is open to the public, you must RSVP ($12.24) to attend. Light dinner included.
If you’ve never been to Resistor before, check our Participate page for more info, including the Code of Conduct. If you’ve never been a CryptoParty-like event before, you can find out more on the CryptoParty Guiding Principles page.
$12.24 RSVP here.
