I’m a researcher and journalist with the Liu Institute for Global
Issues at the University of British Columbia and am working on a project <>, supported by the Centre for
International Governance Innovation and the Munk School of Global
Affairs,that is investigating people’s exposure to conflict and
repression through their use of digital technologies.

We are looking to gather perspectives on one issue we are addressing:
the targeting of civil society organizations and activists for hacking,
surveillance, online threats, and other actions that put people at risk
or stifle their voices.

We are reaching out to individuals in the security, advocacy, policy and
academic communities, to solicit suggestions for improving the digital
security of activists. We are doing so, in part, to contribute to the
public debate around the Canadian federal government’s current
Consultation on Cyber Security.

We are hoping that you might be willing to share your insights or
recommendations. We have created a short questionnaire
<>that people can fill out.

We will publish an edited version of people’s responses on <>later this month. Of course, we
are more than happy to share any comments we would attribute to you
before publishing them.

We do ask that you provide an email in the questionnaire so that we are
able to get in touch should we want to ask follow up questions, or to
send me an email directly to let me know you have completed the
questionnaire so that I can follow up as necessary.

Best regards,
John Woodside
