Week 4: Privacy tools

  • Real time lecture: June 14th 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern


This week we'll continue what we started in week 2. Alison will lead us through a discussion on various privacy tools that solve different problems, and will discuss the threat models that might find each tool relevant, as well as the amount of friction and technical difficulty that users often experience with each tool. Those in the cohort who are already teaching privacy are invited to talk about their experiences with these tools, as well as their preferred privacy tools that aren't covered in the lecture.
