It may seem like it’s been quiet in TOWR-land but that’s just an illusion. Behind the scenes there’s a lot going on, and it will result in better training and more availability for folks outside the Pacific Northwest.

Webinars

Over the last year, we’ve had several students who traveled from across the country to attend our classes. While we think that’s fantastic, the truth is that a lot of folks can’t afford to do that. Judging from the emails we’ve gotten, however, we also know that those folks need/want training too. To that end, we’ve decided to start doing Webinars. You asked for them, and so we’re doing them. This means you’ll be able to log in from your computer and take a class right at home. They’ll have cheaper fees than in-person classes, and you’ll still be able to ask questions, see the curriculum, and do everything you can do if you were here in the classroom.

We’ll be offering our Basic Privacy and Anonymity Class in August via webinar, so those who couldn’t travel to make it last time will be able to get in on the training as well. Stay tuned for details!

Online Security Briefs

One of the things we spend a great deal of time on is keeping track of events in the tech and security world. The threat landscape is constantly changing, and those involved in resistance activities or even just those trying to keep their privacy intact need to stay informed of those changes. There isn’t always time to do an in-depth article on each notable item, however, and so we’ll be putting together regular briefs to let you know what things you need to be aware of—and what changes you need to make as a result.

Reading Room

It is imperative that you be well-read. That’s all fine and good, but what should you read? Where do you start? We’ll be putting up lists of books that you should definitely be checking out, and we’ll explain why you should be reading them. If you know of a book that needs to be on that list, let me know!

We are almost to our one year anniversary, and we are grateful for the level of support we’ve received. We’ve held some fantastic classes thus far, and we’ll be holding more. Feel free to email us at any time with feedback on classes you’ve taken, ideas for future training, or just to pick our brain on digital security, intelligence, communications, or other topics. As always, our goal is to empower you, the individual, to be the most prepared and well-trained partisan you can be.

Long live FREEDOM!
