Creating security policies for your organization does not have to be difficult, especially considering the amazing tools and knowledge that already exist in the digital rights space. Join Gem Barrett who will provide you with an overview of SOAP, a free online tool they created to help organizations generate custom security policies. In this presentation, Gem will share a brief history of SOAP and their research analyzing how security policies are used by civil society organizations. Join this practical workshop and learn:
- The benefits and challenges of taking a privacy-conscious and security-first approach to tool development.
- Gem will provide a demo of SOAP, so individuals can understand how to use the tool to create their own security policy.
The discussion will include an interactive Q&A segment where you can ask Gem your questions directly!
