Digital safety & security

On 11 May 2021, HER Internet hosted a dialogue on Surveillance and security to unpack what digital safety and security look like in this age of digital surveillance. The Internet excels at the job of quickly sharing things with others while on the other hand, keeping private information safe and secure online is a challenging task, doubly so for Lesbian, Bisexual, Queer womxn and female sex workers in particular. This dialogue therefore created space for much needed discourse on what the womxn present understand surveillance to mean and what their different and various vulnerabilities are; in comparison to the security skills, tools and information available to them.
