Increasing the Safety of Digital Social Action Further resources

Other resources that directly address the safety, security, and privacy of digital social action include trainings and resources from the Tactical Tech Collective, the work of WITNESS, forthcoming guides from ZeroDivide, legal resources and tools from Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union, and the tools and community being built through the Responsible Data Forum. A working list of ethical codes that inform the digital activities of some sectors of civil society was developed for the Ethics of Data Conference at Stanford in September 2014. In addition, several innovation challenges are starting to include ethics panels in their review processes. Humanitarian groups, disaster relief agencies, and data science groups are all looking at how the capacities of digital tools serve their purposes but also challenge certain existing practices.
