DIGITAL INTEGRITY FELLOWSHIP
Setting the stage
DIFP aims to fill missing digital security capacity needs for on-the-ground organizations promoting human rights, focusing on those fighting to increase free expression and internet freedom. The internet freedom community needs a deeper and richer base of expertise to gather in-field real-time data about the twin challenges for small and medium sized organizations to maintain up-to-date digital security strategies and policies and for the internet freedom technology developer community to fully grasp the challenges individuals in the field face on a daily basis. DIFP aims to fill these gaps and others often unaddressed by common digital security training and capacity building initiatives, which can fail to increase long-term expertise within organizations and locally or fail to influence research and technical development.
Typically, DIFP fellows have experience working within digital security teams with a holistic security mindset who are willing to work with diverse sets of at-risk individuals, and have contributed to digital security technology projects to make them more suitable for users or raised awareness about digital security needs for at-risk communities. Generally, a fellow’s work may be to conduct the initial digital security assessments, understand and document the organization’s adversary as well as the organization’s culture, vision, and what they need to succeed in the face of their digital threats.
