- Women activists from the Balkans, Macedonia + (Testimony “My first Digital Security Train … Testimony “My first Digital Security Training as co-facilitator”, Berlin, February 2015 - lagartata March 2014 was my first encounter with Digital Security (DS). I was participant on a security training, implemented by Tactical Tech and Front line defenders, organized by Kaos GL in Ankara Turkey. For the first time I realized that encryption is actually something that we can all get and use. We had wonderful facilitators that amazed me with their knowledge and self-education. I got very motivated to learn more about securing my digital data, but also curious to locate and map all my insecure habits. My next stop was the Gender and Technology Institute (GTI). One of the best institutes that I have ever been, where my brain was loaded with so much information that it was getting crazy. I took all those valuable connections, info and knowledge that I made, I embraced my motivation and enthusiasm about the issue and again I started from the beginning. I changed my mental scope and entered more deeply into the world of technologies. I started learning more about the devices that I am using and in the same time I was implementing more tools to secure my communication and data. My plan was to train myself until the point where I will feel competent enough to approach some of the wonderful people that I met on the GTI and offer my services to help spreading the word. Then unexpectedly I got an encrypted mail (:P) proposing me to join a facilitators team and do my first training as a co-facilitator. First I got scared and wasn't sure if I knew enough, as I was still learning and it is a great responsibility talking about security. My brain started working like on the GTI, as an overdosed CPU, so in the same time I was assessing my knowledge and the lack of knowledge that I have, comparing it with the opportunity to share what I know and learn what I don't know from the ones that are more experienced than me. I had the opportunity to share my modest knowledge but also be part of a DST team, so I realized that it is a great challenge that I can't miss. So I accepted the offer. I realized that the panic that was rushing through my veins was actually positive and was making me invest more time and force in my preparation. So I had few weeks full of reading and finding ways for transferring what I have learned into visual and practical materials for the training. Luckily I didn't have to “invent the wheel” again and I was using the resources that other DS trainers have already put online to help people like me. In the same time my creativity was also challenged so it was a very interesting process. Meanwhile we were preparing the training on meet.jitsi and mail, with the two other great co-facilitators from Tactical Tech. The agenda was evolving from week to week. The sources that we used were the opinion and experience of the facilitators and the questionnaires filled by the participants before the training, regarding their knowledge and use of devices and OS. The deal was, every one of us will lead some of the sessions, others will be done together, but most importantly every facilitator will give their support and focus on the participants while the other was presenting. It all sounded great and while I was still struggling with my fear I was challenged even more to be better and to learn more. So enough about my prep time and let me get to the point.
