I'm Steve Trush.

I work to understand how technology can assist us in addressing challenges affecting the world's disadvantaged populations while we also protect privacy and human rights through value-sensitive design and effective regulation.

I run West County Labs where I design sustainable security programs for under-resourced organizations. On the board of the non-profit Secure Justice, I work to counter the broad impact of irresponsible government and corporate abuses of data and technology on human rights or civil liberties.

I recently served as a research fellow at UC Berkeley's Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) where I was deputy director of CLTC's Citizen Clinic, a public-interest cybersecurity clinic that supports the capacity of politically-vulnerable organizations to defend themselves against online threats.
