Information Security and Organizing Workshop

When: Thursday, July 20, 2017, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Where: encuentro 5 • 9 Hamilton Place • Boston

Join activists from Cryptoparty Boston for a hands-on workshop to learn about encryption tools and how we can protect our privacy against the surveillance state and other intrusive forces.  We'll "hang out" with computers and try to get rid of the fear that the panopticon (the "all-seeing eye" of the state) wants us to live under.  Bring your questions, laptops, phones and devices and together we will help set you up with various tools to encrypt your communication and be anonymous on the internet.  Topics we can cover: PGP email encryption, Tor browser, Tails, secure text messaging/ chats/ video calls, key signing, mesh networking, how to install linux onto your computer... and more!

We'll have refreshments at 6:30pm.  Bring yourself and a friend and questions about "what do I download?" and "what's a public key?"  Join us, learn stuff, and next time, you can be a crypto angel" by treaching a new person something too.

Sponsored by Boston Socialist School and E5.
