CUPS OF COFFE
We have various services that we offer to the diverse needs that each organisation might require, below are some of the our services.
Digital Security Awareness & Trainings
DSZ works with human rights defenders; independent activists and journalists to understand their digital security and privacy risks and help them to protect themselves and their information and build their digital security skills.
The security of organisations is the sum total of its individual parts. Establishing the status of your organisation’s security is not only key to find out whether your systems and security has already been compromised, but it also enables users to stay on top of the latest security threats
Research: Internet Governance, InfoSec, Security Practices
On occasion, members of the DSZ team lend their expertise to important pieces of research work related to technology, digital security, digital rights and internet governance.
Tech Support & Hardware Treatment
Our team has experience in working with both hardware and software of different operating systems i.e Windows, Mac OS, Linux etc
As a team dedicated to supporting human rights defenders, DSZ tests the usability of various security apps before training or recommending them to users. This includes existing and new apps still in development
One of the major gaps that the DSZ team tries to cover is the localization of several software or mobile apps into local languages ie mainly Shona and Ndebele.
