How I helped her as rep:
Cryptoparty Bhubaneshwar was my first event to work with Harshita, I helped her understand about global mass surveillance programs like PRISM by NSA and safeguarding ourselves from it with privacy alternatives at https://prism-break.org, with a conclusion privacy can be best achieved with Encryption and Free Software which is decentralized-by-design. Discussions after the event continued, I helped her understand the importance of https://privacyfirst.in campaign, detailed discussion on Policy India Strategy 2019 which emphasizes on the significance of creating awareness around privacy and data protection in India.
I’ve discussed with her about my work with organizing WoMoz events , and new initiatives from Diversity and Inclusion team at Mozilla and its functionality, how to ensure CPG in communities she is building up.
