Press

We regularly speak to the media about topics related to technology and its impact on individuals and society at large. We provide both commentary on the social, political and cultural impact of technology, and also practical advice for the general public. We have a broad range of expertise in: privacy, digital security, misinformation, digital investigation, data & politics, and youth & technology.

If you’d like to speak to one of our experts then please write to press@tacticaltech.org. It helps if you provide details of the topic or questions you'll ask, the format of the interview (email, phone, video call), and your timeline.
