    Six months before the entire world knew his name, Edward Snowden threw a CryptoParty in Hawaii with privacy researcher Runa Sandvik in an effort to teach locals how to protect their online privacy from threats as big as the National Security Agency or Google. Twenty Hawaiians attended the workshop taught by Sandvik and Snowden, who later called the event a CryptoParty was conceived in 2012 as a global grassroots movement to teach cryptography to the public. Anonymizing tools like Tor and strong file encryption like TrueCrypt are introduced and explained at free public workshops so that more of the population can learn about the threats against their information in cyberspace.
