To better understand your online privacy and what that means, let’s first define privacy & security for this article.

For victims of online harassment, threat modeling is how we identify, communicate and understand threats in order to mitigate and protect a victim/survivor/person.

The type of work you’re doing can impact your threat model significantly, especially if you’re involved with organizing & activism work, you are a journalist, or a public figure. Each situation will require slightly different threat modeling, preparation, and planning.

Another factor to consider when evaluating threats is your identity. Things to consider with your identity might include, race, economic security, gender or sexual orientation, age, immigration status.

Some people will identify as more than one group and be especially vulnerable to threats & harassment due to those factors.
