Feel like we're in a bad episode of Black Mirror? Is Mr.Robot looking more like a documentary? Between the corporate, state, and civilian threats we face, talking about cybersecurity can be overwhelming and stir up a lot of difficult emotions. This social event from the CyPurr Collective hopes to provide a comfortable space to discuss these anxieties as well as current events in the digital world. Let's build up our digital-agency and form a critical understand the tech encroaching on our lives. All while enjoying delicious tea and snacks, of course. https://cypurr.nyc

For this SecuriTea, we'll be discussing how to separate and protect parts of your identity online. The commercial net wants one identity for all contexts, which puts folks with marginalized identities at risk. You contain MAGNITUDES, and so should your digital life! Discuss your experiences and connect with resource and find strategies for going forward!

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!
