Glitter Meetups

Glitter Meetup is the weekly town hall of the Internet Freedom community at the IFF Square on the IFF Mattermost, at 9am EST / 2pm UTC. Do you need an invite? Learn how to get one here.

Guest: Gus Andrews, Security in a Box

Security in a Box (SiaB) was radically transformed in 2021. Come learn about what has changed in this 24-year-old resource for the digital freedom community! We are hoping it is now a lot more usable, practical, localizeable, and easier to update than before.

Join us at the Glitter Meetup on Thursday, January 13th for an introduction to what has changed. Bring your feedback for Gus and Front Line Defenders, so we can keep making SiaB a more useful resource for you and the communities you work in.

Gus Andrews has been working in the digital freedom community since 2013, starting the first program to improve the usability of secure tools at the Open Internet Tools Project. She has since worked for Simply Secure, Internews, Tactical Tech, and Front Line Defenders. Gus is the author of Keep Calm and Log On, a book that summarizes advice from the internet freedom community about privacy, security, mindfulness, and disinformation.

Front Line Defenders was founded in Dublin in 2001 with the specific aim of protecting human rights defenders at risk, people who work, non-violently, for any or all of the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Front Line Defenders provides rapid and practical support to human rights defenders at risk through advocacy, grants, trainings, rest and respite, and a 24-hour emergency hotline.
