Digital Self-Defence Center

CyberPeace Institute

The Digital Self-Defense Center is an online platform offering free training in digital security for journalists, activists and civil society actors. The course demonstrates what action you can take to protect yourself online and take control of your own internet safety. 

The Digital Self-Defense Center was created by Kiron Open Higher Education gGmbH in 2022.

The training is offered in English and Spanish at the moment. Kiron’s team is in the process of adapting the campus to the Afghanistan context and will soon provide the existing course and additional content in Dari and Pashto. 

Just sign up and begin the course!

Since 2015, Kiron has been providing high-quality educational opportunities for refugees and underserved communities. Through their platform, Kiron Campus, they empower learners worldwide and equip them with the tools, skills, and networks they need for future success.
