<www.internetsociety.org/action-plan/2022/encryption/> is a
fundamental part of how we remain safe online and offline:

person safe in the knowledge no-one is listening in or tampering with their
messages. Despite this, some governments around the world are ramping up
their attacks on end -to-end encryption (E2EE). Some governments view it as
a hurdle for law enforcement agencies. But systematically weakening
people’s digital safety is not the answer. End-to-end encryption is the
gold standard of security in a world where daily life is increasingly
online. We need to push back against government efforts to undermine E2EE.
On the annual Global Encryption Day, we join our efforts to discuss how to
protect end-to-end encryption and defeat any proposals that undermine it.
ISOC Kenya will have its Global Encryption Day activities on 13th October
from 9am to 4pm. It will be a hybrid event with both physical and online
participation. The goals of the workshop are the following:
1)To explain the technical details of encryption
2)To create awareness about encryption and the importance of end to end
3)Advocate for strong encryption
4)To create awareness how to defend encryption
The venue for physical attendance will be Kenya National Library Buruburu.
