Digital Integrity Fellowship

The Digital Integrity Fellowship offers support, training and accompaniment to human rights organisations and collectives in the development of sustainable capacities for information management and digital security. Our team of seven digital security fellows offers tailored accompaniment for between six and eighteen months to organisations in internet repressive environments, helping them to map the improvements they need to make, and working with internal staff or members to ensure they can build a sustainable set of practices and tools to ensure the organisation’s data is well protected. Fellows work with a holistic vision of protection, where necessary collaborating with partners focused on organisational protection, physical security and psycho-social well-being, to ensure that the accompaniment is carried out in a manner that contributes to the well-being of the collective.
