Conferencing Options for Advocacy Programs during COVID-19 Pandemic

Technology Safety and Responsibility


The following is a list of tools that programs could consider for communicating with survivors remotely, that meet current best practice standards.


Two key factors to consider in any tool are:

  1. Encryption options where the tech company itself cannot see the content of the files because they do not hold the encryption key – only you do

  2. User access options that allow you to control user-by-user access to the content.

While we do not endorse these tools, they are well-suited to protect privacy as they are currently set up

  1. Resource Connect: instant messaging for staff and volunteers 

  2. Gruveo: Video calling 

  3. Cyph: Video calling, instant messaging, group chatting 

  4. Tresorit, SpiderOak’s SemaphorMegaSync, and pCloud: File Sharing 

  5. Zoom: video conferencing, conference calls, and screen sharing 

    1. Recommends to use a password for meeting access for sensitive meetings.
