Northwest Academy
1130 SW Main Street
Portland, OR 97205, USA (map)

Northwest Academy 1208 SW 13th Ave, 2nd floor Portland, OR

The meeting will be in the Plaza building at 1208 SW 13th Ave, on the 2nd floor. When coming up 13th, there is an entrance to a surface lot behind our building. We're in the 2-story building (not the 5-story building). The lot should be empty at meeting time. Park anywhere except in the auction winner’s spot. If the the lot is full, use the lot behind the 5-story building.



Join us for a combined meeting with Data Privacy PDX!

Data privacy is important to everyone but can be felt even more keenly by those who advocate for causes that can be controversial. This workshop is to introduce foundational data privacy strategies and teach easy solutions for helping activists protect the privacy of those they engage with and themselves. Of course, you don't have to be an activist to benefit from making your digital life more secure -- all are welcome!

Greg Stromire, a local security engineer and activist, has hosted variations of this workshop for over a year. He will base the content on the interests of those who attend, covering:

    • Why Privacy Matters
    • Private Messaging, Email, and Voice Communication
    • Securing Your Devices
    • Best Practices Online
    • Storage for Private Data

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions and news 6:15 PM: Data privacy 7:15 PM: Q&A 7:30 PM: Wrap up and networking

We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking following the talks. We hope to see you there!
