The online world can be a wide and wonderful place. It can be insightful, helpful, and a general benefit to our everyday lives. But opening your life up in this interconnected digital realm does not come without some downsides: Do you feel like someone's watching you? Do you feel you are giving away a bit too much info about your life? Are you generally paranoid every time you open a browser window? If any of these questions resonate with you, then join the CyPurr Collective at the Info Commons Lab of the Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch as we share some sweet tips on how you can navigate the world wide web as safely as possible, as well as answer your questions and concerns around browsing.

Come on by and get advice on your cybersecurity and hardware problems, or just come to meet n' greet with other folks who are also interested in learning more, and chatting about the big digital issues of the day! Snacks and children are welcome. Open to beginner and seasoned techies alike!

What is The CyPurr Colective?

The CyPurr Collective (formerly CryptoSquad NYC) is a group of some tech-minded folks who are very jazzed about cybersecurity, cats, and helping folks out with their digital dilemmas. We offer workshops for activists, journalists, educators, and everyday folks who want to up their encryption game! Additionally, we offer personal security audits for groups/organizations who are concerned about their cyber-safety. Plus, we have some of the kewlest CryptoParties!
