ONLINE: TO BE CONFIRMED ON THE DAY
Luxembourg Digital Privacy Salon is free, intended for everyone, no prior technical expertise is assumed.
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.
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.
This year the Privacy Salon is presented in collaboration with BEE SECURE in the frame of the campaign “#checkyourfacts.”
