Safety Net's 10th Annual Virtual Tech Summit

Topic: Safety Net's 10th Annual Virtual Tech Summit

Hosted By: Safety Net

Date/Time: Tuseday July 19 1:00 PM-5:15 PM EST

Description: We use the term “tech safety” to encompasses the many ways that technology can impact a survivor’s experience of abuse. We include experiences of both harm and healing, as well as efforts to prevent harm or promote healing. Any aspect of a technology or technology product can be relevant to tech safety, from original design, to implementation and use, to its evolution or when it’s obsolete. Thinking about technologies in multifaceted ways is essential to effective survivor advocacy work and safety planning. To be survivor-centered and meet survivors where they are, advocates must consider the many ways technology is a part of survivor’s lives and their experiences of abuse. Technologies can be misused as a tactic of abuse and can pose significant privacy risks, but they can also be harnessed strategically to increase safety and privacy and provide more options for healing. This session will discuss the scope of tech safety work and some of the most common ways that technology can impact survivors.

Safety Net's 10th Annual Virtual Tech Summit

Topic: Safety Net's 10th Annual Virtual Tech Summit

Hosted By: Safety Net

Date/Time: Wednesday July 20 1:00 PM-5: 15 PM EST

Description: Since 2017, our research group at Cornell University has been looking at the role of technology in intimate partner violence (IPV) contexts. We have worked with victim-survivors, support professionals and advocates to design the Clinic to End Tech Abuse (CETA), a voluntary-run service that pairs victim-survivors of tech abuse with privacy and security experts to identify and respond to threats and harms posed by the abuser. In this talk, we will share the origins of our model and show how our research can blend with practice to equip victim-survivors with the skills and knowledge to help navigate their technology concerns in a supportive and caring environment. We impart some considerations for how other professional services might adopt some of these approaches in their own work . We are grateful to have worked with many collaborators including our primary partner The Mayor's Office to End Domestic and GenderBased Violence (ENDGBV) and clinic volunteers, please see the website for Computer Security and Privacy research and the Clinic to End Tech Abuse for more information.

Safety Net's 10th Annual Virtual Tech Summit

Topic: Safety Net's 10th Annual Virtual Tech Summit

Hosted By: Safety Net

Date/Time: Thursday July 21 1:00 Pm-5:15 Pm EST

Description: The pandemic has highlighted opportunities to use technology in our work with survivors. Yet, how we use technology can directly impact survivors’ privacy and safety. In our 2021 Needs Assessment, over half of respondents said they routed hotline calls to home and about 1 in 5 responded that they had added text messaging or web chat to their hotline. For ongoing work with survivors, most people said they used voice calls and about half said they used text or video. Over a third of respondents shifted support groups to video. In this session, we’ll look at the benefits and challenges of these tools, and what lessons we should take with us into the future.
