Mozilla Teaching Task Force

The teaching task force is a global community initiative. Members can participate from around the world by joining this group of Mozillians who enjoy educating others in the areas of privacy, security and other pressing Internet issues. We actively promote and teach Privacy, Security, Net Neutrality and Surveillance at events. We have created a repository of existing presentations and other resources to make it easy for others to join us and start spreading the word.

Task Force Members have two key roles:

  • Actively give presentations and/or hold workshops at local universities and conferences to educate on topics related to privacy, security, best practices to keep your data safe, etc.
  • Mentor and encourage Mozillians to take up the topic of privacy and security and talk to people (i.e. grow the Task Force).

How to Join

The Mozilla Privacy and Security Task Force would like to expand across the communities of the world. If you’d like to educate others about privacy and security, join us!
