Soupy Security is an interactive, illustrated story for information security (infosec) practitioners and the community organizations that they work with. Built with Twine, an open source storytelling tool, the project is a collaboration between artist, Shoog McDaniel and Slammer. This workshop will explore the importance of storytelling in demystifying network infrastructure. Using a "choose your own adventure" style format, participants will create their own stories to address infosec questions that impact social and economic justice organizations.
The workshop will run Friday, October 18, 2019, from 9:00 am - 10:00 am. Tickets are available here.
All materials will be provided for participants in the workshop.
