This workshop takes a holistic approach to digital security, investigating what it means to find practices to protect yourself in a digital environment. This workshop, led by Digital Justice Lab’s Director, Nasma Ahmed, will explore how we relate to our virtual bodies, and what we can do to navigate and counteract components of hyper-surveillance through digital practices.
We recommend that workshop participants bring a laptop, but it’s possible to partake without one.
