Counterpart International (CPI) invites written quotes from qualified individuals, organizations and/or firms for the service of a cross-platform application developer.
CPI is an NGO working in the international development sector. One of CPI’s projects, Internet Freedom Project, enhances Internet freedom by improving the defensive cybersecurity capabilities of local partners in developing countries.
Problem: Numerous human rights defenders, activists and journalists have been taken infosec trainings and are mentored by Digital Security Specialists (DSS). Despite this, most of them are not patching their OS/digital tools when needed and they are not using encryption tools if needed. Indeed, these concepts can be abstract for them and our DSS should have an easy way to demonstrate the usefulness of patching OS/digital tools and encrypting communications.
- A monster-in-the-middle (MiTM) service which would enable a DSS to show, in real time, how vulnerable trainees’ unencrypted traffic is to surveillance;
- A phishing service which would enable a trainer to demonstrate to trainees how easy it is to use a none-patched security breach to steal information.
