Security In-a-box is a guide to digital security for activists and human rights defenders. The toolkit ranges from the basic principles of digital security, including advice on how to use social media and mobile phones more safely, to more specific regional advice for activists working in higher risk environments.
Although the toolkit was designed primarily to address the growing needs of advocates in the global South - particularly human rights defenders - the software guides and security strategies in this toolkit are relevant to everyone; specifically people working with sensitive information. This may include vulnerable minorities, independent journalists or whistleblowers, as well as advocates working on a range of issues, from environmental justice to anti-corruption.
It was first created in 2009 alongside Front Line Defenders. Since then, the website has been updated and expanded to keep up to date with a rapidly-changing digital environment.
