Our #RightsCon2020 Tech Demo
This year’s RightsCon was a different experience. As other public gatherings and conferences were cancelled or postponed, RightsCon was moved to an all-online format, with sessions being conducted via video conference. The format was different but the program was familiar: Just as at any other RightsCon, there were keynotes, fireside chats, panel discussions, workshops, tech demos and lightning talks. We at CDR were very glad to participate in some of the discussions on pressing topics in human rights and technology, and we’re grateful for the wealth of expertise that was shared throughout the week by so many of our colleagues and friends.

Announcing CDR's new Docs Site
Today, we at the Center for Digital Resilience are launching a new documentation site to support our flagship tool, CDR Link. We have developed CDR Link as an open source helpdesk solution that prioritizes privacy and security, and we have been hard at work creating new resources that prospective and current users may consult when they have questions. All of these new resources can be found at https://docs.digiresilience.org.

Sunsetting the DSX
The path toward launching the Digital Security Exchange (DSX) started the day after the 2016 election, when many U.S. nonprofits began taking their operational security more seriously. Most of these groups didn’t know who to turn to for help with assessing needs, training staff, implementing best practices, and so on, so we embarked on setting up a helpdesk that would connect those seeking digital security assistance to those who could help.
The result was three years of the Digital Security Exchange. Today we’re announcing we’re retiring the DSX project.
