A year after the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal, CryptoPartyLDN @CryptoPartyLDN brings together a panel of experts to discuss the evolving risks to data and democracy online.

Do you know when you're being politically manipulated? What's changed in the past year - and what more needs to change? Is democracy being diversified or damaged by social media? Is it time to ban micro-targeted ads online?

Why CryptoParty?

Privacy is the space in which ideas are developed, to retreat into whenever you want. This space is not only physical but digital as well. Governments and companies don't want to respect that so we become active ourselves.

What is a CryptoParty?

CryptoParties are free and open for everyone, but especially those without prior knowledge, who haven't yet attended one.

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. This can include encrypted communication, preventing being tracked while browsing the web and general security advice for computers and smartphones.

To try the programs and apps at the CryptoParty bring your laptop or smartphone.
