October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Balancing Technology Innovation and Safety within the Context of Gender-Based Violence
As our dependence on technology has dramatically increased during these unprecedented times, survivors have experienced an alarming spike in the misuse of technology by those who seek to control them.
The Technology-Assisted Abuse Conference aims to provide participants with:
- An overview of the emerging risks associated with technology use.
- Recommendations for mitigating technology misuse.
- Strategies for increasing survivors’ privacy and safety.
