Privacy Advisory Commissions
Online

Did you know that, on June 2, 2015, the Oakland City Council established the first municipal Privacy Commission in the United States?

What is a privacy advisory commission? What types of privacy issues does it address? Who does it advise? How does it work? Should Portland have one?

These are some of the questions we'll explore this month as the City of Portland looks to rethink surveillance.

Brian Hofer, Executive Director of Secure Justice and Chair of the Oakland Privacy Advisory Commission, will join us to talk about his work on Oakland's commission and how that agency came into being. He'll also talk about how such an advisory body might work here in Portland.

This is a great opportunity to learn about potential privacy-related happenings in Portland and how you can get involved. Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

Speaker bio:

Brian Hofer is Executive Director of Secure Justice and Chair of the Oakland Privacy Advisory Commission. He was instrumental in the formation of an ad-hoc citizen committee to start drafting privacy policies for the City of Oakland and successfully fought for a permanent committee tasked with oversight of surveillance equipment. That committee is now the Oakland Privacy Advisory Commission.

Brian also successfully introduced ordinances throughout the greater Bay Area at both the county and city level to implement significant surveillance equipment reforms, advised on and advocated for state legislation impacting the right to privacy and surveillance oversight, and coordinated with and advised groups around the country on how to implement reforms through legislation and policy writing. He is presently consulting with various cities across the country regarding citizen oversight and participation pertaining to surveillance equipment and data sharing, Smart City regulations, and various “sanctuary” supporting legislative projects.

Portland Accessibility and User Experience Meetup (PDX A11Y UX) - Whole-to-Part versus Part-to-Whole: How Sighted and Blind Web Navigation Differs
Online

When loading a web page, a sighted page visitor can take in almost all information at a glance and home in on what they want to explore — a whole-to-part approach. A blind screen reader user, on the other hand, must reverse the process and gather bits of information through page exploration to create the full picture — a part-to-whole approach. If sighted design stakeholders are not mindful of the differences in these strategies, they may disregard helpful bits of information that allow the most efficient exploration and understanding for blind visitors. Using parallels from pedestrian navigation such as the importance of “landmarks” and “boundaries,” our presenter Dr. Michele A. Williams will help create common ground between sighted and blind communities to ensure blind screen reader users are best accommodated in Web and other digital design.

Event begins at 6:00pm; join early starting at 5:45pm for networking.

Agenda:

  • 5:45–6:00pm Networking
  • 6:00–6:15pm Introductions & announcements
  • 6:15–7:00pm Presentation
  • 7:00–7:30pm Q&A and discussion
  • 7:30–7:45pm Wrap up

About the presenter:

Dr. Michele A. Williams has 15 years of academic and industrial experience in UX, accessibility, and technology. She is passionate about ensuring people with disabilities are not excluded from technology. Her well-rounded experience includes training, design consultation, field research with people with disabilities, and code remediation for building WCAG-compliant technology.

Dr. Williams holds a B.S. in Computer Science, Masters of Software Engineering with a concentration in Human-Computer Interaction, and PhD in Human-Centered Computing with a focus on accessibility.

Application Security -- The Framework, Processes and Tools to Secure Your Apps
Virtual

RSVP: https://www.meetup.com/OWASP-Portland-Chapter/events/277480846/

Excerpt:

Traditionally, breaches that make the news are about stealing data and that data being resold for financial gains. Think Target, Ashley Madison, Marriott and so many more. Recently a spotlight was put on supply chain security via the SolarWinds breach and how that affected many companies. The adversaries were able to inject malicious code into applications that have a lot or rights and are widely deployed in many organizations, small and large alike.

We will discuss the framework, your SDLC (SDL, SSDLC, etc.) – Secure Development Lifecycle – to lay out how you are going to develop and secure your applications. Customers care about this. Once you have your SDLC, you need to define your processes, select your tools, integrate them into your SDLC and finally automate those tools. This is not a short process and often multiple iterations are necessary to get to a good place. The goal of this presentation is to make you aware of a variety of tools that are out there, the various steps along the way of your SDLC you need to take and how to complete each of these steps.

Portland Linux/Unix Group: 360Cloud based on FreeBSD
Online

Portland Linux/Unix Group General Meeting Announcement

Who: Antranig Vartanian
What: 360Cloud based on FreeBSD
Where: https://li584-253.members.linode.com/PLUG
When: Thursday, April 1st, 2021 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom

"From Armenia With Love": Reaching out on Twitter brought a presentation from a colleague:

This talk is separated into two parts: 1) How to make a presentation in 25 hours due to errors in timezone math 2) How to setup a self-hosted Cloud Environment under 360 seconds a.k.a. 6 minutes.

The "Cloud", a.k.a. Someone else's computer has been very popular because it gives you the ability to have a machine/container up and running in seconds. I will demonstrate my new script https://360cloud.sh which "turns" your default FreeBSD Installation into a cloud using FreeBSD's Networking (pf, epairs, bridge), Storage (ZFS), Containers (Jails) and Virtual Machines (bhyve via vm-bhyve) automated with small CLI tools for DHCP and DNS integration.

Antranig Vartanian Is the co-founder and CEO of illuria Security, Inc., a Deception-as-a-Service company, also known as honeypots on steroids. I always wanted to write stories and be a columnist, ended up writing code and being a systems engineer.

Plan B connection information if Plan A using jit.si on linode linked above does not work. Going to this will place you in a waiting room if the other link is working.

Python Pyrates Project Investment App Presentation
Online

Two months ago, we launched the first cohort of the Python Pirates Project. Four participants were chosen from a pool of applicants and tasked with building a web application that investors could use to track equities of their choosing.

The project’s goal was to expose teams to Agile methodology and simulate what it is like to work on a development team. In addition to learning valuable technical skills, participants also experienced pair programming and learned how to submit pull requests, participate in daily standups, and manage their time effectively to ensure their code’s timely delivery.

Join us as Matthias, Xuehong, Jessica, and Matt present their finished product. The presentation will include design choices, engineering challenges, and an overview of the code itself. The repo will be available for you to clone so that you can follow along as they introduce you to Pyrate Stocks!

Panel Discussion on Surveillance Ordinances
Online

Automatic License Plate Readers (ALPRs), Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV), Gunshot Detection, Predictive Policing Software, Social Media Monitoring, Stingrays, and Surveillance-Enabled Light Bulbs — these are just some of the technologies available to law enforcement to monitor and track residents. Which of these technologies are currently being used in Portland, and what are the policies for their use? How do we know if usage or policies change?

There are many factors to consider when adopting surveillance technologies like these: What are the costs and benefits? When, and in what manner, will a capability be used? Who will be the target of surveillance? Will it make us safer? What are we giving up in exchange for that safety? And should a particular technology be adopted at all?

In order to answer these questions, some cities—like Cambridge, New Orleans, San Francisco, Oakland, and Seattle—have passed ordinances that regulate the acquisition and use of surveillance technologies. These ordinances often require the approval of a city council or other legislative body before a city agency can acquire a particular technology or change the way in which a current technology is used.

Should Portland pass this type of ordinance, and if so, how might the law work?

On March 15th, join us for a combined event, with local privacy group PDX Privacy, where we'll ask our insightful panelists the answers to these questions. During the conversation, we'll explore the chilling effects of surveillance, the history of surveillance ordinances, what to look for in a strong ordinance, and how to build coalitions and engage lawmakers.

We'll have a Q&A period via the chat box, but you can also send questions in advance to panel_event AT pdxprivacy.org, and we'll work to get them into the discussion.

Panelists: - Renard Bridgewater - Eye on Surveillance - Kade Crockford - ACLU Massachusetts - Tracy Rosenberg - Media Alliance, Oakland Privacy - Nathan "nash" Sheard - Electronic Frontier Foundation

Moderator: Chris Bushick - PDX Privacy

Digital Justice and Surveillance
Online

As you most likely know, the City of Portland passed two facial recognition bans last year: one banning use of the technology by public agencies, and a second ban prohibiting private use. Building upon that work, they're now focusing on defining and implementing digital justice for residents and visitors to the City.

What is digital justice? Join us to find out!

Hector Dominguez, the Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will be with us this month to explain what digital justice means and how the use of surveillance technologies can impact digital rights and the realization of justice. He'll also talk about designing and implementing privacy impact assessments in the City.

Come learn about what's going on in Portland and how you can get involved. Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

Speaker bio:

Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland. In 2009, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt an Open Data Resolution to encourage the expansion of the technological community by promoting open data and partnerships between City government and the public, private and nonprofit sectors, academia, and labor.

Remote Tech Talk at the Guild: Unix Philosophy & Tools
PDX Code Guild

Many Unix hackers avoid using an IDE when they do their work. “Unix is the IDE” they claim. In this talk, I will explain the oft-cited “unix philosophy” which permeates hacker culture and illuminates the dark path of the command line. I will then give an overview and demonstration of some of the most common and important Unix tools, such as grep, find, awk, and sed.

You have a game-changing idea... but do you have a game plan? Ideas are easy, but execution is what makes for a strong, sustainable business. Join Ciara Pressler, founder and head coach at Pregame, for an interactive workshop and conversation about what it takes to go from concept to creation:

  • The six areas of business for strategic goal setting
  • A self-assessment structure for where and when to take action
  • How to prioritize when you have too many ideas
  • How founders and creators sabotage their growth

This event would be a great opportunity for founders, executives, team leaders, and creators. Space is limited. We want to make sure this workshop is the right match for you, so share a bit about yourself here! If you're in, you'll receive a confirmation email with the workshop access code a few days before the event. If we have a better match for you, we'll be sure to let you know.

Attendees will get a complimentary e-book edition of Ciara's book Game Plan: Achieve Your Goals in Life, Career, and Business.

This month we'll be looking at jurisdictional boundaries and election results throughout the metro area. Bikeway connections to Beaverton, Lake Oswego, Gresham, etc all go through county and ODOT jurisdictions, leaving disjoint maintenance schemes, besides bike lanes that end at city limits. How are things changing and what can we do to engage regionally with people who want to ride and build a wider grassroots network?
