A series of meetings for practitioners convened by The Engine Room, Association for Progressive Communications (APC), and Front Line Defenders in 2016 led to the creation of the first public resource on organisational security by a community of leaders in the field.
Our first meeting
In February 2016, we co-hosted a meeting between fifteen organisational security practitioners in Prague, Czech Republic to identify best practices for guiding organisations on safety and digital security. Participants were from Engage Media, HURIDOCS, The ISC Project, Digital Society of Zimbabwe, Article 19, Internews and Access Now.
This first of many meetings served to combine our different approaches, and helped us develop a better sense of what we mean by “organisational security” in order to create a new framework for practitioners.
