Feelings It was extraordinary. I felt like a pioneer who started a completely new topic related to the conquest and preservation, women's human rights. Right to IT security and privacy.
Feedbacks Great interest of the participants and the desire for knowledge in these areas. Shown is a high degree of lack of education. When it comes Younger participants, they have a decent technical knowledge, but lack awareness of the risk and responsibility. As for themselves and for others. When it comes to older participants, among them was noticed ignorance ways of functioning of the Internet and the dangers that hide behind that, though they include it in their daily lives, both business as well as private.
Start I'll start looking for sources of funding for longer-term educational process in the field of IT security for women activists.
Stop I will not stop to learning.
Keep Within the existing capabilities will continue with education in the field of women's activism in the IT space, as my own, and beyond, as long as I can get.
