[liberationtech] Crypto Party: Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 17 January

Hi all -- 

I'm generally a lurker/reader of the mailing list, but I'd like to invite you to an event tomorrow in Phnom Penh. Our foreign correspondents club here will be 
hosting a Crypto Party. The target audience is journalists, though we've had interested already from rights workers and business people, and we expect most 
attendees will have little knowledge of security issues and practices. We'll start with a slideshow presentation and workshop, and the rest of the afternoon 
will be there as a drop-in center. We're also encouraging key-signing.

Below is the message that was sent out to our mailing list. 

** Crypto Party: a secure communications workshop **

** Saturday, January 17, 2-7pm ** ** Meta House, 37 Sothearos Boulevard ** 

Did you know that every intelligence agency in the world can read your e-mail and track your online activities in realtime? The Overseas Press Club of Cambodia 
and Meta House will arrange a crypto party this Saturday. We will cover communications security, physical security, operations security and information system 
security from a journalistic perspective.

Drop by our workshop to learn how to communicate securely via e-mail and instant messaging, how to survive border checkpoints and keeping confidential 
information and sources protected. We will provide guidance to help you get through the many pitfalls of modern communication methods.

We live in a digital era where every step is monitored and analyzed. If you are a journalist, rights worker or just overly cautious and interested in the topics 
we will cover, we welcome your attendance. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

14:15 Introductionary talks
14:45 Technical demonstrations and examples
15:00 Hands-on workshop (and drop-in)

Hope to see you there, and please pass this on to anyone who may be interested!
