In Uganda, the digital era of internet and the use of digital devices by human rights defenders and activists, journalists, bloggers to do their work is on the rise. Given the sensitivity of the work they engage in, this has exposed them to a lot of threats and risks like state and non-state surveillance, repressive censorship, phishing, hacking, data loss, identity theft among others. This exposure has greatly contributed to abuse and violation of their privacy making them prone to security threats and risks.
