Intro to Privacy Home | Intro to Privacy Registration


Introduction to Privacy is a workshop being marketed to women to encourage their participation to learn basic internet safety in a welcoming, female friendly environment. The workshop introduces basic skills including the value of strong passwords, how to check if your email has been part of a hack, safe searching, how to manage privacy settings on Google and Facebook as well as introducing the new eSafetyWomen portal recently launched by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner. 

The use of technology to abuse and harass women is a growing issue. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (in AHRC Fact Sheet) estimates that around one in six female workers experience domestic violence in Australia. UK organisation Women’s Aid found that nearly half of domestic violence victims also endure online abuse during and after their relationship with nearly 40% being stalked online (Smith, 2014 in Jane, 2016).

Women are also experiencing online abuse as a part of their professional lives with many of the victims interviewed for Emma Jane's Misogyny Online: A Short (and Brutish) History reporting abuse received in response to their professional online presence which brings into question the workplace health and safety implications for employers. Online abuse of women has been described as "a sleeping giant in terms of negative social impact" and "an important OH&S issue." (Alastair MacGibbon in Gorman, 2015).

According to Emma Jane (2016, 56) "The coercive force of gendered cyberhate is shown to cause emotional, social, financial, professional, and political harm, in that – among other impacts – it silences women, and constrains their ability to find jobs, market themselves, network, socialise, engage politically, and partake freely in self-expression and self-representation." 'Nuff said!

Introduction to Privacy is a positive step individuals can take to improve their online security or for an employer to provide useful skills to their workers or volunteers. Pitched at an introductory level, the content takes people through the basics of online security with practical demonstrations of why strong passwords are needed or where to go for advice if participants think they are being stalked. Ongoing support is provided at no extra charge in a female friendly environment. Buy online access for friends or family now for just $10.

Snitch Hunt Home | Snitch Hunt Registration


If the term crypto doesn't make you want to run screaming in the other direction then this workshop is for you. A re-creation of the Snitch Hunt game designed by Gabor Szathmari, Snitch Hunt puts you in the shoes of law enforcement to test if you can catch a mythical whistleblower 'snitch'. Hints are built into my implementation of the game but they cost those who use them points :-)
