An Activist's Guide to Information Security

This guide presents a basic introduction to information security for activists. It covers security culture, physical security, traditional communication, digital security, and Internet security. It combines insights from activists, hackers, and even academic research on security and privacy. It is essential reading for the modern era.


If this has gotten your head spinning, here is the bottom line. TL;DR: • do actions with people you trust, be honest with them but don’t gossip and brag and don’t keep more information than necessary • separate your activist and your bourgeois life’s Internet identities as much as possible
