NULLCON, Asia’s leading information security conference, training and exhibition platform is all set to happen from March 3rd to 7th in Goa. It is one of the largest information security conferences where hackers, industry experts, vendors, delegates from the government and CXOs come together to discuss and learn the current scenario of information security and what lies ahead.

NULLCON is organizing, for the second time, a dedicated workshop – “Digital Security and Privacy for Journalists, Activists and Lawyers” on 8th of March. The objective behind this workshop will be to help ensure secure communication and storage of confidential data/sources and avoid surveillance/mobile tracking for individuals.

Today, journalists have become more vulnerable on assignment in dangerous places, but also in their daily routines, at home, in the newsroom, or on the road, as digital surveillance increases. The international firms, lawyers and activists are under constant threat of electronic surveillance and hacking. This workshop will answer questions about protecting yourself from surveillance & hacking:

1. What do I want to protect?
2. Who do I want to protect it from?
3. How bad are the consequences if I fail?
4. How likely is it that I will need to protect it?

The speakers for this workshop include:

Micah Lee, Director of Information Security at The Intercept
Saikat Datta, South Asia Editor at Asia Times
Kushal Das, Freedom of the Press Foundation

The workshop will also conduct a Panel Discussion on “Anatomy of Internet Shutdowns” moderated Srinivas Kodali and the panelists include:

Arjun Venkatraman, Co-founder of The Mojolab Foundation
Prateek Waghre, Research Analyst at The Takshashila Institution
Shehla Rashid Shora, Research Scholar, JNU

2. To verify if data received or transmitted is secure from eavesdropping
3. To use Secure Channels for phone calls and create self-destructing messages
