EFF identifies and tracks the
With the help of Craig Newmark Philanthropies, Threat Lab will continue to identify and track the complex web of groups who use malware against reporters and activists. Threat Lab will apply this information to educate the public and put pressure on the companies that build, sell, and license this spyware.
Threat Lab also creates and updates tools that EFF uses to educate and train journalists and others in digital security. Mobile devices, in particular, contain a wealth of data that could endanger reporters and their sources if certain security measures are not taken. This donation will help Threat Lab keep our Surveillance Self-Defense guide and ourSecurity Education Companion accurate and up-to-date in the ever-changing digital landscape.
We are very grateful to Craig Newmark Philanthropies for this generous and important donation to EFF. Threat Labs work is key to protecting free and independent journalism, and we are proud to keep fighting for everyones digital security.
