- DST̞Kenya̠2 + (The f3mhack training for mostly women jour … The f3mhack training for mostly women journalists, bloggers and activists that took place in Nairobi was timely because it occurred when many people are becoming increasingly aware of the need to be safe online. By targeting this unique set of participants who have the skills and forums to share the information with the public through articles in the newspapers, broadcast media, blogs and gender activists to learn privacy and security tools, was critical towards furthering the agenda of empowering them with the tools on how they can share more widely on what they learned. The participants also form a critical group that is often susceptible to cyber attacks due to the nature of their work and there was need for discussion on practical tips that an individual or group could take towards finding tips on how to advocate for private online spaces to be protected. The training was set up to help the participant understand threats from a personal point of view so that one can develop practical steps on privacy advocacy and security that can impact a larger group from a point of understanding. For the training of university students in Njoro, the training was important to reach out to this group as they are often referred to as the techno savvy generation. They are well versed with the latest sites where they can access free software that would most likely expose them to more dangers. As was evident in the discussions held, the large number of students at the university means that when a cyber crime occurs, the level of sharing that information is very high and the level of stigma also high because the students can easily identify and meet the person who has been offended online due to their close proximity at campus and their daily interactions. This group was also a critical one to target for the training because it would be considered as an early intervention for the students to start applying the knowledge learned that would be useful to them on campus and when they join the job market. Some of the students were in their last semester so it would be great to follow up with them after a year to see the impact the training had on their work lives. The other main critical reason why targeting the university was critical is because through organizing the training through the gender department, their was the hope that we would be strengthening the existing structures of privacy safety online but more so to introduce them to the need to set up modules on privacy advocacy and security that would be streamlined in the curriculum or if not existing forums to discuss on various issues.sting forums to discuss on various issues.)
