The CyPurr Collective

CyPurr Sessions at the NYPL



* Location: Mid-Manhattan Library at 42nd Street, 476 Fifth Ave, Room 67A
* Time: 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
* Date: Saturday, February 24th 2018

Worried that the WWW has you in its Web? Overwhelmed by surveillance, digital harassment, or security leaks of personal identification? You are not alone: This workshop is a space for people of all experience levels to share skills and learn from each other about online privacy protection. We’ll discuss easy steps to secure your data, like password managers and two-factor authentication, tools you can use to protect yourself from surveillance like Tor and PGP, and best practices for using them all safely.

Since digital security affects all of us in different ways, we believe each of us has something to contribute to the conversation—everyone is welcome. Bring your laptop or device, or just come to listen and learn.

Drop-in session | No registration required

What is The CyPurr Colective?

The CyPurr Collective (formerly CryptoSquad NYC) is a group of some tech-minded folks who are very jazzed about cybersecurity, cats, and helping folks out with their digital dilemmas. We offer workshops for activists, journalists, educators, and everyday folks who want to up their encryption game! Additionally, we offer personal security audits for groups/organizations who are concerned about their cyber-safety. Plus, we have some of the kewlest CryptoParties!
