This week we'll cover one of the building blocks of privacy advocacy and a major theme for this course: threat modeling. Threat modeling is a method for figuring out a privacy strategy that works for someone based on their unique needs, their material conditions, and their community network. Alison will teach us how to threat model, and how we can use this methodology in thinking about privacy in the current moment and beyond. We'll also talk about free and open source software (FOSS), what it means for privacy, and how it offers one vision of a rhizomatic, grassroots, internationalist movement for better technology. Depending on time, we may cover some of the 101 level privacy tools for anyone with any threat model.

We'll discuss some example threat models, and the ways that different threat models should impact our decision-making when it comes to library privacy. We'll also introduce and discuss basic privacy terminology.
