Because they lack expertise, this program aims at enhancing the operational and technical capacity of individual activists and human rights organisations in the area of online freedoms, systems enhancement and digital security to effectively carry out their work.
Encrypt implements several activities that are geared towards building the capacities of individual activists and organizations.
Information Systems Enhancement
We intend to carry out regular security assessments and audits with a view of identifying vulnerabilities associated with the information systems.
It’s a digital innovation lab for Encrypt which focuses on developing and designing free open source digital security tools. The lab believes that everyone especially human rights defenders around the world deserve tools that respect their need for security, privacy and transparency in order to communicate and share data.
The lab works closely with open source tool developers to provide feedback on tools they have developed in order to meet the needs of the community in which Encrypt operates.
Encrypt lab will also design visual tutorials on how to install and use the free open source tools for HRDs.
Cyber Rights Protection
Encrypt seeks to increase civilian (civic) knowledge to the people regarding their rights when it comes to digital use. This is aimed at empowering citizens to actively use the cyber space fearlessly freely without intimidation free. Encrypt intends to create continuous advocacy campaigns on digital rights and use of internet.
