How to Democratize Technology, Uphold Ethic and Create Safe Spaces for Marginalized Groups with Cyber Collective Founder Tazin Khan

In this episode of Support is Sexy, Elayne Fluker invites Tazin Khan the founder and CEO of Cyber Collective, which empowers people of all kinds of backgrounds to be more critical towards their relationship with the internet by providing them with different resources and tools to remain secure and private online. Tazin talks about how she first got a hint about what cyber security was, how she started to realize that the common behavior of the technology companies was to prioritize growth over ethics, and therefore how she decided she wanted to contribute to her community by educating people of marginalized groups on cyber security while producing revenue.

 

Tazin Khan

Tazin Khan is the founder and CEO of Cyber Collective whose main purpose is to educate the public, especially in marginalized communities, about data security and privacy. Within a short few months of launching, the organization hosted 10 creative research sessions with over 1,200 global attendees, released a national petition, became a cohort to the largest privacy coalition in America, and partnered with UCLA’s Center for Critical Internet Inquiry. Khan comes from a long line of folx doing social impact work and creatives who use their platforms to create visibility and change: her father was a freedom fighter and her brother is an accomplished musician and artist. It is no wonder then, that her work in the cyber security space is coupled with activism and creativity. Khan activates all parts of her identity to present thoughtful, and hilariously engaging social media content to connect with her audience and induce social and individual behavioral change.
