Security

Humanitarian- and conservation-focused organizations, particulaly those operating in smaller regional contexts, often lack the resources to secure critical data, or to operate safely in contested environments (such as when facilitating aid under state surveillance). These operational risks can lead to a hesitancy to collect important data.

Our security work focuses primarily on data security, application-level security and operational security. As a matter of policy, we tend not to disclose those of our partners for which we assist with security-related issues.
