Des Crypto Parties à Harlem

Le site Motherboard consacre un article à Matt Mitchell, fondateur de Crypto Harlem. Ce hacker et spécialiste de la sécurité est le premier à avoir organisé une Crypto party dans les quartiers à forte population noire de New York, afin de sensibiliser les citoyens les moins informés des dangers de la surveillance numérique dans les entreprises et sur le Web.

"But they weren't the people who were directly affected by this stuff," Mitchell said, meaning blacks, Muslims, Latinos. (...) The solution to the problem is to get directly affected people the basic skills and tools to get started on this stuff. It's not for the white hacker to show up and save the day. Because that's just not going to happen," Mitchell said. (source)
