Practical Digital Protection is a series of self-study manuals on best practices for individual digital security aimed at local civil society organisations, rights lawyers, media workers and other human rights defenders living in hostile environments. 

It is designed to assist those who are at greater risk of being subjected to prolonged interrogations, torture and confiscation of electronic equipment. It was developed in closed cooperation with local beneficiary groups who provided input on real needs and feedback on practical issues.

The series is unique in that it is not a general guide, but is customised to meet local needs. It is also more practical, focusing on safe behaviours rather than technological fixes.

There are currently English, Chinese, Vietnamese and Turkish editions. More languages are planned.

Contact Safeguard Defenders for further information or requests for assistance with training.
