Integrity and personal information safeguarded by Shield
A family with secret identities meets with social services and speaks freely thanks to Shield
Mobile phones are a security risk for people in vulnerable situations. A hacked phone can reveal a secret identity or location. A perpetrator can, by placing malicious software in a phone or using a regular app with microphone access, threaten and hurt his victim. This means that a phone should never be left out of sight and that a phone never should be laying around during a meeting where sensitive information is discussed. An obvious cyber security conundrum.
Integrity and privacy
To help people in vulnerable situations safely share information we have created Shield, a noise-box especially developed to make phones less of a security risk. Here is an example of how Shield can be an important piece of a truthful conversation between social security and a family living under protected identities.
A mother and her child living under protected identities have a meeting at social services. They have been living under threat for a long time and are extremely cautious not to be found. To respect the family's integrity and privacy the social services have a Shield in the meeting room where all phones are put in sensitive meetings. This also gives the mother a well needed sense of safety.
