Cyber Security for Sex Workers – Announcing our Summer Webinar Series!
There’s now a growing number of sex workers in our region who use dating sites, escort sites, smartphone apps, and social media platforms for work – and this brings many pros and cons. On one hand, the internet can provide increased freedom, safety, and opportunities for sex workers. We can use it to market ourselves, screen clients, share information with one another, and build community. But it can also bring new threats and challenges for sex workers! SWAN has been working with a top team of digital security experts to bring you a series of four webinars tailor-made for sex workers and sex work organisations, all about how to keep yourself safe online.
