For 10 years, Tactical Technology Collective and partner organisations such as Front Line Defenders have worked with human rights defenders, in order to help them better to protect their sensitive data, their communications, themselves and their communities when carrying out their work, through developing online resources, books, and carrying out regular trainings around the world. As part of this process, we have developed the "Security in a Box" book and toolkit ( which now receives around 200,000 visits a month.

However, in order to continue improving our materials and make digital security easier to understand and contextualise for specific communities of human rights defenders, we have begun a process of creating "context guides" which make the guide more accessible for certain communities at risk. The idea of this survey is to help create and improve such a guide, for LGBTI activists from Africa, which would help the community understand the need for healthy digital security practices by demonstrating the risks they face and providing stories of best practices from others in the community.

If you'd like a better idea of what it may look like, the first such guide, which was created for LGBTI human rights defenders from the Arabic-speaking world, can be seen in English here:
