Global Encryption Day

The inaugural Global Encryption Day takes place on 21 October and we want you to get involved.

 

Global Encryption Day is an opportunity for businesses, civil society organizations, technologists, and millions of Internet users worldwide to show our communities why encryption matters to all of us and why everyone needs to pledge to Make the Switch to encrypted services and platforms. 

In the days leading up to Global Encryption Day and on the day itself, you can organize or join events and activities taking place around the world to promote strong encryption. Take a look at the events we’ve got coming up in our global events calendar.

  • An event to train the public or members of specific communities or raise awareness on how to use encryption or its importance in their daily lives.
  • A digital media campaign promoting encryption or awareness of threats to encryption.
  • A panel discussion on a policy that threatens strong encryption.
