Online safety - protecting yourself

Speak Up & Stay Safe(r): A Guide to Protecting Yourself From Online Harassment. This is a handy, general guide to online self-protection, written by people who've been targets from cyber attacks themselves. In their own words:

" This guide is for anyone who fears they might be targeted, or who is already under attack, for speaking their mind online, but is especially designed for women, people of color, trans and genderqueer people, and everyone else whose existing oppressions are made worse by digital violence. It details best security practices for social media, email, online gaming, website platforms, and ensuring privacy of personal information online, as well as the documentation and reporting of harassment, and caring for yourself emotionally during an online attack. You don’t need any specialized knowledge to use this guide – just basic computer and internet skills."

And for organisations > 12 TIPS TO BEING SAFER ONLINE, This Safer Internet Guide is designed for nonprofits, charities, and NGOs (pdf). This is a short, readable guide I recommend to clients.
