Privacy: Theory and practice beyond the GDPR


To properly use Bitcoin and blockchain based technologies, you have to know how to protect your privacy. This course is designed to teach how to use free, open-source computer tools for this purpose.
The course is divided into two parts: the first part will deal with the notion of privacy, how governments relate to it and an introduction to the “Tails” operating system; in the second part it will be analyzed PGP (encryption of emails, text and files), VeraCrypt (encryption of volumes and plausible deniability) and will be given introductory notes on the relationship between Privacy and Bitcoin.


The course aims to provide some basic tools to improve privacy and security of your business, which are also a prerequisite for the operations with cryptocurrencies. The course also aims to provide essential informations to stay up to date on a subject of great interest.
Participants will also be given the material analyzed during the course, the Bcademy student kit and two USB sticks: one with a copy of the latest version of the Tails operating system and the other for its backup (which will be done during the course).
Participants are required to bring their computers and another empty USB stick.
