Luxembourg Digital Privacy Salon is free, intended for everyone, no prior technical expertise is assumed.
Digital Privacy Salons are skill & knowledge sharing sessions which aim to teach people the basic ways of protecting themselves and their data from intrusive surveillance and unwanted/unwitting information gathering.
Generally the salons deal with how to have private conversations over instant messaging, emails, how to browse anonymously amongst other things.
If you are planning to become a 1337 haxor or you are an renowned CyberSecurity specialist looking for an escape route during the festive period or you are just curious and want to learn more about the ‘dark side’ of computing then we have you covered.
Join the team that represented Luxembourg at the European Cyber Security Challenge the 28th and 29th of December 2019 to participate to the Capture The Flag (CTF) competition organised by HXP during the 36th edition of the Chaos Communication Congress.
Whichever browser we use, it is one of the ways we interact most frequently with the internet and one of the ways we leak loads of private information.
Come to the last Salon of 2019 and we’ll help you lock down your browser so it gives away as little information about your habits, preferences and location as possible – please bring along your laptop and pre-install firefox for this edition of the Privacy Salon.
Also this year Syn2Cat’s members are participating to the Science Festival with some unique creations: the Laser Harp and the Theremin.
Not many of us are accomplished musicians but we like to create things that are not just nice to look at but also allows for interaction and stimulate the creativity of those using them.
Come to see us from the 7th to the 10th of November, at the Abbey of Neumünster in Luxembourg City, to discover how we built a harp with lasers and how you can play music with electric fields.
For directions to the Science Festival:
Privacy Salon will be participating in Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg by holding a special edition where we will be playing some security games for kids. Fun, practical and hands on, we’ll be exploring face paints to block facial recognition algorithms, making phone cases which block all signals, play special board games, create safe passwords with dice, find out how encryption keys work etc.
Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg is an advocacy-campaign week, which aims to raise awareness of cybersecurity threats, promote cybersecurity among citizens, corporate and SMEs, and provide up-to-date security information through education and sharing best practices.
In this edition of the Privacy Salon we will look at attitudes towards Internet Security of the participants, based on the recently released Eurobarometer of the European Commission.
