  1. Task 1 Privacy lets you be you

    Privacy depends on encryption. Learn more about how it works, why it's essential and why it's worth protecting! #youbeyou

    Task

    Watch the video below on Privacy, think about how this might affect you on a day to day basis. Why does Privacy matter to you and what can you to do help protect your own privacy? How can you ensure privacy on the web is appreciated and defended?

    Evidence

    • Share the measures you put in place to help protect your personal privacy - explain why these measures matter to you.
    • What are your red lines in terms of privacy? What would you ultimately say no to?
    • If everything you have ever shared online was public, and could be seen by anybody on the web what implications would this have upon your life? Share the possible outcomes of a world where privacy didn't exist.

  2. Task 2 Meet Encryption

    Meet Encryption, she's hard at work keeping you safe online

    Task

    Watch the video around Encryption and think about the ways it's used to help protect you throughout the day. If you're unsure about whether a communication tool or financial transfer you make is encrypted, then find out! It's better to know you're safe and secure than to be left in the dark!

    Evidence

  3. Task 3 Encryption, Journalism and Free Expression

    Encryption doesn't just protect your privacy, it also enables free expression. Encryption helps shield journalists and their sources, allowing individuals to tell powerful stories.

    Task

    Watch the video around how Encryption is being used to protect Free Speech and provide individuals with the opportunity express themselves freely across the web. Begin to think about how without Encryption, important news stories and exposures would perhaps not have come light and been shut down by government.

    Evidence

    • A number of new articles are referenced throughout the video, pick one of these and explore the story further - sharing your findings and how you think Encryption played a key role in ensuring this message could be conveyed.
