Defending human rights in an uncertain, complex, and digitally sophisticated world. That's the challenge. Across the globe, human rights activists, staff, and partners alike are wrestling with the realities of virtual life and the new digital landscape. They need help. They need a cyber security partner that they trust. Not just in strategy or cyber advice to benefit the most disadvantaged people across the globe. That's a given. They need detailed technical help from an information technology professional. Someone that readily gets "hands-on" with operations, responds to incidents, manages tools, monitors event logs and enforces detailed policies and procedures. An all-rounder, both able to discuss cyber strategy and actively implement technical controls needed to keep someone safe. It all matters in the defence of human rights. And no day is ever quite the same.
