Developed by Paradigm Initiative (PIN) with the support of Stanford Digital Society Lab and the Kingdom of Netherlands, amongst other partners, the toolkit’s overarching aim is to address the growing need to safeguard digital rights defenders, journalists, whistle blowers, and others working with sensitive information in the global South.
This toolkit provides digital security tips and measures that can be taken against potential threats. It also includes profiles of digital security actors, a calendar of relevant digital rights events on the continent, and last but not the least, the links to resources such as digital security case studies from selected African countries, model policy briefs and media releases, and model coalition statements. A section of the toolkit is dedicated to network disruptions, what you can do to circumvent, how to keep records, and advocacy resources for such moments.
