Tibet: Frontline of the New Cyberwar


‘Tibet: Frontline of the New Cyberwar’ tells the story of Tibetans’ epic struggle to stay connected and advance their struggle for rights and freedom while defending themselves against targeted cyber attacks from China. The film looks at the many ways technology has revolutionized life for Tibetans, including the risks taken by those who dare to communicate the reality of the situation on the ground inside Chinese-occupied Tibet. Experts break down the types of digital attacks Tibetans are targeted with and discuss simple strategies people can take to strengthen their security.

The documentary includes exclusive interviews with researchers from The Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, whose ground-breaking 2009 GhostNet report exposed a major Chinese cyber espionage network targeting state, private and civil society actors globally, including the offices of the Dalai Lama and Tibetans worldwide.
