Technology is impacting on our civil liberties, our rights, and our autonomy. Tactical Tech is a non-profit organisation who has been responding to these shifts for the past 15 years by finding practical solutions for a global network of activists, technologists and engaged citizens. Their outputs are shared with over three million people worldwide through applied research, capacity building, trainings, workshops, events and exhibitions. In doing this, Tactical Tech hope to raise awareness about privacy, provide tools for digital security, and mobilise people to turn information into action.

We currently work within three programme areas: Exposing & Shaping issues; Digital Security and Privacy; and Data Politics. In all three we work to raise awareness, build practical skills and inspire critical reflection and inspiration.
Trainings and workshops
Through trainings and workshops we provide direct support to over 2000 advocates a year, through intensive training in small groups, as well as through 'flash trainings' or clinics at large-scale gatherings and conferences.
