Security in-a-box Arabic

Security in-a-box Arabic

The Arabic joins the French, Spanish and Russian versions of the Security in-a-box which are all available online and in a printed book. This book was produced with our partners Frontline Human Rights Defenders, who we've been working with for several years to train activists on how to implement security measures in their information handling and communications.


Security in-a-box provides the knowledge you need to recognise digital security threats such as these and the tools you need to address them. It offers detailed, step-by-step instructions to help you use those tools effectively, as well as practical, non-technical advice for anyone who relies on digital technology to do sensitive advocacy work.


The software and strategies in this toolkit has something to offer anyone who works with sensitive information, created by a diverse team of experts who understand not only the conditions under which advocates work, but also the resource restrictions they face.


This Arabic edition was edited and localised by Ahmed Garbeia, a software engineer, blogger and activist from Egypt. Here Ahmed talks to about the role of online activists in the Cairo protests and how these activists were using tools and techniques - such as PGP encryption and Tor - included in this toolkit.



You can access it online or printed books in all these languages are also available. If you would like to order a copy for yourself or copies for an event you're organising, see our Order toolkits and Guides page.
