FRONT LINE RELEASES DIGITAL SECURITY AND PRIVACY MANUAL

Are you a human rights worker who uses computers in your job? Are you afraid that your electronic work is not private and secure when it needs to be? If so, check out Front Line's indispensable "Digital Security and Privacy for Human Rights Defenders" manual.

The manual is divided into four parts that can be read in any order. Section One is about understanding your security needs and vulnerabilities. Section Two gives you handy advice on how to defend yourself, including protecting your work from viruses and spam attacks and getting around Internet censors. The third part tells you about restrictive legislation around the world, and the fourth section offers possible electronic insecurity scenarios you and your organisation might face, and some practical solutions.

The manual is available online, making it easy to skim through the various sections: http://www.frontlinedefenders.org/manual/en/esecman/
