The Venezuelan Government’s repression and the persecution of activists and opposition in general has increased considerably since last April, when a new wave of protests against the regime began. This situation meant that a significant number of political and social leaders, such as the mayor of the municipality El Hatillo, David Smolansky or the vice president of the National Assembly, Freddy Guevara, had to go into hiding. Faced with this fact, a group of Venezuelan trainers carried out a communications protocol for clandestine situations. This protocol indicates everything a user must do from the acquisition of the equipment, through its configuration and use, to establish a secure communication channel with third parties during isolation or eventual departure from the country. During this session we want to share this protocol and the implementation experience,and receive their impressions to improve upon it.
Target Audience:
Security trainers, journalists, communications professionals and developers of support material for trainers.
Desired Outcome:
- Impressions of the attendees about the clandestine protocol - Recommendations to improve it - Forms of diffusion within the community
