hey y’all -
i just found this really great resource about assisting survivors of domestic/intimate partner violence w/ digital security. again, “clinical computer security” isn’t the most appealing or welcoming language — but i think these researchers/practitioners approaches and solutions are eye-opening, even if they aren’t services that a library can legally or safely offer in the immediate future.
there is a video and a paper! lots of terrifying information about the types of spyware out there. also, some good insight into how one could detect through what means they are being harassed/abused digitally. also some information about how to navigate stalking that could happen via facebook specifically.
this resource is also NYC specific, but their techniques and insights could be applicable in any state.
