This fundamental-level module is grounded in promoting digital autonomy - the idea that tools and technology don’t have magic superpowers over us, and that we are the ones who decide what we give them access to. By empowering participants to develop a personalized understanding of digital security concepts, they come away equipped with the information they need to make their own decisions about which tools and practices are best for them.

Learning Goals for Participants

  • Introduce the concept of holistic security to your participants.
  • Encourage participants to consider what the idea of “security” means to them individually.
  • Dispel common myths and misconceptions about digital security tools and practices.
  • Support participants as they re-claim a sense of control over their technology.
