IMPACT

We aim to make it safer for people to be online through awareness and training sessions, online guides, and rapid response to emergency cases.

 

HIGHLIGHTED ACTIVITIES

Our recent activities include:

 


 

Training Jordan’s teachers in digital safety

We conducted more than 16 training sessions in June and July 2020 on the topic of "Safe Internet Usage and Preserving Privacy During Remote Teaching", in partnership with the Salamat project.
The online sessions were targeted at teachers who were pushed to use technologies for remote teaching during the lockdowns brought by the pandemic. We were able to reach more than 160 teachers and we plan to reach more.

 


 

Digital security training for journalists

We conduct regular digital security training sessions for journalists and media professionals in Jordan. As an at-risk group, we believe journalists should be equipped with the skills and knowledge to protect themselves and their information online. Our sessions cover a variety of topics from safe communication, to secure file storage and transfer, and online anonymity.

You should have a password that takes more than a few million years to brute-force for it to be considered secure.
