Why Does Information Security Matter in International Development?


March DC Salon - RSVP Now

At a previous Salon on mobile data collection systems, our discussion was almost derailed with a debate on data security. With a spectrum of data and information security needs from school grades, to AIDS test results, to political action and resistance movements, we could not agree on: Info Security
  • What levels of data security are need, and when?
  • Who is impacted and to what levels if data isn't secure?
  • How can we educate practitioners and supporters on the need for data security?
  • What concrete steps can we take to make data secure?
  • When and how do we call out bad data security policies or practices?
To answer these questions and dive deep into the information security discussion, please RSVP to join an information security advisor on digital safety, a Syrian activist and cyber security professional, and your technology and international development peers at the next Technology Salon DC:

  Information Security Salon
  8:30-10am, Wednesday, March 27, 2013
  IREX Conference Room
  2121 K Street NW
  Washington DC 20036

We'll have hot coffee and donuts for a morning rush, but seating is limited. So RSVP ASAP to be confirmed for attendance - once we reach our 30-person capacity there will be a waitlist.
