Apply now for Cyber Stewards Programme

The Canada Centre for Global Security Studies and the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto are looking for "Cyber Stewards" to support South-based cyber security scholars, advocates and practitioners who can articulate a vision of cyber security that protects rights and openness.

Cyber Stewards will define their own work based on their local context and pressing concerns. The expectation will be that Cyber Stewards will map, analyse, and ultimately impact the cyber security priorities of their own countries and regions on the basis of shared knowledge and practices.

Cyber Stewards will be selected from Central America, the Caribbean, South America, sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East and North Africa, and Asia. They will work locally while networking globally through the University of Toronto.

The reversal has spanned a variety of countries in every region, from long-standing democracies like the United States to consolidated authoritarian regimes like China and Russia. The overall losses are still shallow compared with the gains of the late 20th century, but the pattern is consistent and ominous. Democracy is in retreat.

    Previous research has shown how 42.55 percent of free apps on the Google Play store could share data with Facebook, making Facebook the second most prevalent third-party tracker after Google’s parent company Alphabet.1 In this report, Privacy International illustrates what this data sharing looks like in practice, particularly for people who do not have a Facebook account.
