    PDX Women In Tech (PDXWIT) CryptoParty

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite

    With increased regulations for ISPs to track consumer data and the ever-present possibility for fraud, keeping our internet activity private is more important than ever. CryptoParty is a decentralized movement with events happening all over the world. The goal is to pass on knowledge about protecting yourself in the digital space. Join Bhavna Soman of Intel and Justin Mitzimberg of Cylance as they cover secure browsing, password security and management, two-factor authentication, and setting up VPNs to protect your privacy. They will also be available to discuss any advanced questions or specific issues.

    CryptoParties are free and open for everyone, but are especially valuable to ‚Äčthose without prior knowledge and haven't yet attended one.

    To try the tools and apps directly at the CryptoParty, bring your laptop or smartphone.

    Purpose: PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
