About SAFETAG and Internews
Internews ( is an international non-profit dedicated to building healthy, trusted, and relevant media and information systems in countries where they do not exist. Our global technology programs advance the digital safety of our partners, and advocate digital rights and protections for the world’s most vulnerable populations. From funding local internet rights advocacy initiatives and open source technology development to designing cutting-edge approaches to organizational security, we focus on local and regional needs, and connect them at the global level to demand an inclusive, safe, open web. In addition, we provide technological support to media outlets and human rights defenders, and pilot cutting edge approaches to analyzing and researching closing civic space.

Internews developed the SAFETAG (Secure Auditing Framework and Evaluation Template for Advocacy Groups) methodology, a professional audit framework that adapts traditional penetration testing and risk assessment methodologies to be relevant to smaller non-profit organizations based or operating in the developing world.
