Due to the increased demand for our support from rights-based civil society organisations, collectives, and defenders in the global south, Open Briefing needs to expand its team of digital and information security consultants and trainers. You must have excellent written and spoken Spanish and English, and ideally be based in or from Latin America. You must have experience in the NGO sector, ideally with low-resource rights-based, environmental or humanitarian organisations or activists.
As we all adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic and the public health measures necessary to delay its spread, Open Briefing is offering several remote services to help organisations protect their people and operations during these challenging times. This includes contingency planning advisory calls and reviews, staff wellbeing checks and workshops, and digital security during homeworking.
Open Briefing can now refer organisations and activists we are supporting to the Access Now digital security helpline. This 24/7 support service is available in nine languages and is free-of-charge for civil society around the world. If you are at risk, they can help you improve your digital security practices; if you are already under attack, they provide rapid-response emergency assistance.
