About Us

 
 

Internews’ Global Technology team is a unit within the broader Internews organization that focuses on ____. Internews has long been a leader in promoting both digital rights and protections for the world’s most vulnerable populations. From blanket internet shutdowns in Cameroon to low adoption of difficult-to-use privacy and security tools, online space is becoming increasingly unsafe. Our team is empowering local advocates to advance strong internet policies that promote human rights and creating a global network of trainers to expand better digital security practices among high risk users.
