Digital Self-Defense - re:claim the net
Tactical Tech will be hanging out at re:publica, ready to offer you hands-on advice on digital security and online privacy.
If you have questions around mail encryption, secure data or password storage, or alternatives to services like Google, Skype and others, come and find us. Bring your computer or phone and we'll also help you install the software you need.
Or just come and chat! We love nothing more than to discuss data politics, digital security and privacy. We'll also be offering short talks about some of our main projects at various times throughout the day (Security in-a-box, Me and My Shadow, Tactical Tech's work in general, etc).
Times will be announced on-site - but you're of course very welcome to come by and talk to us about our projects any time!
Find us in the "re:claim the net" area, to the left of the big re:publica courtyard, sharing the space with Digitale Gesellschaft and Global Voices Online.
Digital Security Clinic opening hours:
Wednesday 10:00 - 21:00
Thursday 10:00 - 19:00

Who are we?
Tactical Tech is a non-profit organisation working since 2003 to advance the use of information and digital technologies by advocates and activists worldwide. Based in Berlin, we work with an international network of partners and collaborators to help rights, accountability and transparency advocates and the communities they work with to use information and digital technologies effectively in their work.
We have three focal areas: exposing & shaping issues, the politics of data and digital security and privacy. We work to raise awareness, build practical skills and offer both critical reflection and inspiration in all of these areas. Through trainings and workshops we provide direct support to over 2000 activists a year. Through a range of toolkits, guides, online resources and films we reach a further 2 million people per year.
Have a poke around tacticaltech.org - we hope you'll find something useful, interesting, or inspiring in the process!
