Next Digital Privacy Salon 12/03/19: A Deep Dive Into Disinformation

Privacy Salon will be taking a deep dive into the murky waters of disinformation in the context of the European Media Literacy Week and the upcoming European elections.

We will be investigating how disinformation spreads, how our data feeds it, what skills we need to identify it and what can be done to combat it.

No prior technical expertise or knowledge is assumed, so ask away about anything

For more information on Privacy Salon read this @sachaheck post about a Salon and this interview with Rosi, asking about her transition from Privacy Salon attendee to speaker. The interview is also available in French and German.

Digital Privacy Salons are skill & knowledge sharing sessions which aim to teach people the basic ways of protecting themselves and their data from intrusive surveillance and unwanted/unwitting information gathering.

Generally the salons deal with how to have private conversations over instant messaging, emails, how to browse anonymously amongst other things.

It is very important that you leave the Privacy Salon with tools & knowledge you can use on a daily basis, and explain to your friends how to do it too. All the attendees should come with device(s) they want to install tools on.

– We’ll discuss why cryptography, anonymity and anti-tracking tools are important today
– We’ll install online anonymity tools
– We’ll secure our communications
– We’ll make sure we can’t be easily tracked online
– We’ll have a drink and a chat
