Here's the gist

Human Rights Watch(HRW) defends the rights of people worldwide. They want to track how sensitive information is being stored across their organization.


HRW staff investigates and exposes human rights abuses. They create a lot of data in this process in the form of audio files, images, notes and communication. This data is being stored and accessed in multiple ways. Some of these tools and access points may not be safe. They want to map how the organization and staff are storing their data. This will help them make better choices for safety of staff and involved citizens.


Help HRW become data security complaint and safeguard sensitive information on human right issues. This may involve training their staff on information security.
