    Harvard Humanitarian Initiative: Digital Security and Cyber Resilience in refugee camps

    The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative Signal Program’s approach to the use of data in crises and complex development contexts is simple: data is people. And people have human rights. But what does this meaning for my technology project? What sorts of questions should I be asking myself in order to uphold these rights? In this session, Signal's Daniel Scarnecchia and Nathaniel Raymond will walk through some of the obligations technology owners have towards affected populations, and help the audience surface the important questions to ask themselves in order to become responsible custodians of the data of vulnerable people.
