Buried by all the recent privacy policy updates? Overwhelmed by indiscriminate surveillance, digital harassment, or security leaks of personal identification? You are not alone! Our cryptoparties are a space for people of all technical skills to share skills and learn from each other about online privacy protection.

At this month’s workshop, we’ll talk about how laws like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation and the US’s CLOUD Act affect companies’ terms of service, data-retention policies, and privacy-by-design. With the upcoming GDPR for EU, countries are redefining how their borders extend into the internet—how does that change the ways that we protect ourselves? How do we know what jurisdictions to worry about? Should we still store all our stuff on servers in Switzerland?Come by and talk with us about all these issues; we’d love to hear your thoughts!

The CyPurr Collective is a group of some tech-minded folks who are 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!
