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.
Below is a tech demo we produced that explains a bit about who we are and dives into our flagship technology, a secure helpdesk platform, CDR Link. While originally recorded for the RightsCon audience, we thought it could be a useful resource for anyone interested in knowing more about CDR.
Additionally, Access Now has created a public playlist that includes some of the key discussions that anchored the conference. Congratulations and many thanks to Access Now for managing such an impressive feat in organizing and executing such a large online conference in such little time. We’ll see you at #RightsCon2021! Hopefully in person :)
