- Women activists from the Balkans, Macedonia + (Location: Berlin
Dates: 21-23 February 20 … Location: Berlin Dates: 21-23 February 2015 Participants: 18 Facilitators: 3 Organizers: Kvinna till kvinna The background of the participants was different, they were coming from different countries from the Balkans and the Caucasus region, dealing with different issues but what they all had in common, was that they are WHRD, they all used facebook, managed sensitive data and 17 of them were using Windows. One was only using MAC after switching from Linux. The group had already built wonderful dynamic in their work as before the DST they have spent some days on workshop about integrated security. They already knew each other, some even from before. The questionnaires showed us that their knowledge regarding DS was different but we realized that even more on the training. However it was mostly basic knowledge or “never heard of” knowledge. It was very challenging to think in terms for all of them getting equal challenges and information, therefore we had to start from the beginning and try to challenge everybody. At first it was scary as they all had their computers and we had the impression that almost everybody was chatting on facebook, but after few moments following the demand that computers are used just for the hands-on sessions, it all got better and their interest was focused on the training. The participants were not only interested but were engaging lots of examples and experiences, which gave an awesome ground for making the risk assessment before we started more concretely about concepts and tools concerning the DS. We had 3 days training that was constituted by three different parts. The first day was mostly concentrated on the risk assessment, introduction of some notions of security, elevating the issue that security requires changes of habits. The tools introduced were around protection of malware, secure passwords, securing sensitive data on the computers. (Keepass/KeepassX, Avast, TrueCrypt) The second day was mostly about introducing how the internet works and how to engage more secure internet connection, have more secure browser and mail settings, then we focused on the notions of anonymity and circumvention. The tools were around, Firefox, NoScript, Adblock, HTTPS Everywhere, Tor, VPN, TAILS. The third day was concentrating around secure online communication, encryption and verification, introducing secure encrypted chat, Voip and mail encryption. As the mail encryption took more time, we separated the group on two parts, the ones who needed and wanted to stay with Thunderbird, Enigmail and PGP and the ones who wanted to continue to mobile security. The training ended with the discussion about feminist perspectives on the digital security which cleaned the path to wrap up the whole training. The full agenda can be found here. Almost every session was using the same approach, example or activity that was followed by discussion and input with more examples and theory, then introducing tools, hands-on or just demonstration, ending with general impressions and questions for the summary.impressions and questions for the summary.)
