Eva Galperin (Director of Cybersecurity at EFF)

June 07th, 2022 | 17:30
Aula Alte Technik
Rechbauerstraße 12, 8010 Graz
Talk is held in English.


We're all in cybersecurity, but who is cybersecurity for and what does cybersecurity protect? This talk will discuss some of the failures and blind spots of cybersecurity as it stands and discusses the ways in which cybersecurity can be reimagined to protect the marginalized.


Eva Galperin is EFF's Director of Cybersecurity. Prior to 2007, when she came to work for EFF, Eva worked in security and IT in Silicon Valley and earned degrees in Political Science and International Relations from SFSU. Her work is primarily focused on providing privacy and security for vulnerable populations around the world. To that end, she has applied the combination of her political science and technical background to everything from organizing EFF's Tor Relay Challenge, to writing privacy and security training materials (including Surveillance Self Defense and the Digital First Aid Kit), and publishing research on malware in Syria, Vietnam, Lebanon, and Kazakhstan. Since 2018, she has worked on addressing the digital privacy and security needs of survivors or domestic abuse. She is also a co-founder of the Coalition Against Stalkerware
