Expanding knowledge-sharing of cybersecurity through an Indigenous lens

This educational research project is funded by a Community Investment Grant from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), under the category of Engagement: Research and knowledge-sharing activities that broaden public understanding and participation in Internet policy development, governance and cybersecurity.

The project involves travel to Indigenous rural communities to facilitate discussions surrounding online privacy, through broad-interest workshops that fit the needs of the communities (e.g. workshops at schools aimed at young children or youth, or workshops aimed at whole communities, including parents, community leaders, etc). The workshops will explore everyday issues surrounding cybersecurity.

We hope to post all educational materials related to this project here, for others working on similar projects to download and adapt to their needs.

This project is headed by Sarah Plosker and Gautam Srivastava.
