This page gathers some useful guides and resources on digital security.
General Digital Security Guides#
The main resources on digital security are:
- Surveillance Self-Defense by EFF is the main reference, it is available in 11 languages and well maintained.
- Security Planner by the Citizen Lab is an easy to use platform to get practical recommendations
- Security In a Box is a very good resource, but not maintained anymore and many guides and articles are now outdated.
- In French, le Guide d’autodéfense numérique is a good in-depth manual (that may not fit for people looking for quick answers)
On Phishing and Malware attacks#
If you want to understand phishing and malware attacks more specifically:
- the Guide to Phishing by Security Without Borders is a good starting point
- This Phishing Quizz by Google is a good way to practise identifying phishing emails
If you want to know more about phishing and malware attacks against Civil Society, you can check Security Without Borders Reports on Targeted Suveillance of Civil Society, or this article I wrote about attacks against Civil Society in 2019
On Digital Security in Protests#
Several interesting resources were published recently on digital security during protests:
- Protecting protester privacy against police surveillance by Amnesty Citizen Evidence Lab
- From Beirut To Minneapolis: A protest guide in solidarity
- Tactics to secure your smartphone before joining a protest by Amnesty International
On Security Trainings#
Here are some good resources on how to do security trainings:
- the Security Education Companion by EFF is a great resource (it is an updated of the content at level-up.cc)
- Digital Security Training Resources for Security Trainers, Fall 2019 Edition
