Capítulo #5 - Protección contra Pegasus


Every year, governments, law enforcement agencies, militaries, and corporations invest billions of dollars into building and buying malicious spyware--software designed to silently infiltrate a user's device and allow attackers to view the contents without detection.

Este año, el Proyecto Pegasus reveló que los usuarios de este tipo de software espía, conocido como Pegasus y construido por el grupo NSO, habían apuntado a los teléfonos que pertenecen a miles de personas en más de 50 países, incluidos ejecutivos de empresas, políticos, periodistas y activistas de los derechos humanos.

In this edition of PrivChat, join Likhita and Etienne Maynier of Amnesty International and John Scott-Railton of Citizen Lab to discuss:

  • ¿Qué pueden hacer los particulares, periodistas, activistas y defensores de los derechos humanos para protegerse de los sofisticados programas espías?
  • ¿Qué tipo de organizaciones podemos apoyar para ayudar a poner fin a estos abusos?
  • ¿Quién está trabajando en un software más seguro y privado en el que podamos confiar?

Roger Dingledine, Co-Founder of the Tor Project, will join us as our host and moderator.
