Aspiration: Tips for creating a culture of security in your organisation (online hang-out)

/ April 7, 2015

Allen Gunn from RDF partner Aspiration will be on Greenpeace’s MobLab Live hangout on Wednesday 8 April, talking about a crucial responsible data issue:

“In the wake of the ‘Snowden files’ that exposed the mass surveillance program by the CIA, creating better security and privacy has been a top question for many non-profits and media agencies.

But often the focus of security has been on the technical side, with mysterious acronyms like PGP and OTR. The missing ingredient for many groups is the culture itself, creating a culture of security. Allen Gunn of Aspiration shares his tips for success on how NGOs can foster a culture that makes security accessible and meaningful.”

After getting interested in what data and technology could add in those areas and elsewhere, he made a beeline for The Engine Room. Tom is trying to read all of the Internet, but mostly spends his time picking out useful resources and trends for organisations using technology in their work.
