From Fall 2017 – through the Spring of 2018, I got to work with ten other trainers to collaborate on the design and facilitation of a digital security training series for organizations, and our pilot group was organizations supporting immigrants in NYC.
In particular, our goal was to “build power – not paranoia!”
Over the Spring and Summer I edited the artifacts and documentation into a PDF guide, available for download via Mozilla here.
I’m particularly proud of the section for facilitators, which outlines both agendas and activities, and shares some best practices for facilitation in general. For example:
A workshop is an intentional space, created for learning, changing points of view, and people leave with clear actions to take. Part of the power of a workshop is in its design and leadership.
This guide instructs trainers how to inclusively lead a participatory five-part organizational digital security workshop series — or mix-and-match to create your own workshop or series.
Whether you follow the workshop content we shared closely, or create your own, there’s a roadmap to help you lead the sessions. Read in details about the workshop objectives and topics on theÂ Whatâ€™s Covered in the Workshops page.
This Organizational Digital Security Guide for Immigration Justice helps facilitators to:
- Raise awareness around concepts in organizational digital security
- Use frameworks to facilitate hands-on practice with security tools and tactics
- Advance participantâ€™s organizational security practices via awareness, contextual understanding, strategies, and practice
- Build relationships of trust and a community of practice between trainers and participants
