I’m helping spread the word about a digital privacy training project I’ve been working on at Brooklyn Public Library with some partners. Please read on and be in touch if you have any questions.
Do you want strategies for helping library patrons understand vulnerabilities in their online communications and transactions? Are you looking to train library staff in digital privacy concepts? Do you want to better understand networks, privacy-protecting tools, and risk assessment in a library context?
At the Data Privacy Project, librarians, community activists, tech experts, educators, and researchers have developed learning modules and curriculum materials to support library staff. Handouts and slideshows can be adapted for trainings in any type of library, and on the Data Privacy Project website people can view a historical timeline, data flows diagrams, and a risk assessment exercise with sample patron profiles. All our training material is available under a Share Alike 4.0 Creative Commons license.
