About us

Nothing 2 Hide is an association whose purpose is to help citizens and professionals to protect their data and communications. This association is an initiative of a group of journalists and former NGO workers. We focus especially on technology and information and how the first can empower the latter.

Grégoire Pouget has been working for ten years in several medias as a journalist, web editor and developer. He then joined the NGO Reporters Without Borders and got involved in projects aiming at combating online surveillance and censorship. After 5 years, and several digital security workshop around the world (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Thailand, Senegal, Tunisia, Ukraine, Turkey,etc.) with bloggers, activists and journalists, he joined Library Without Borders where he worked two years as a CTO to build free and open source software. He is the co-founder and current president of Nothing2Hide, an organization which purpose is to help journalists, lawyers, human rights activists, NGO workers, etc. to protect their information and communication.

He was invited in 2017 at the Sakharov Prize to run a training for journalists and bloggers. He’s the co-founder and current Secretary-General of Nothing2Hide.

The truth is that just the two of us won’t change the world. This is why we have created this organization and asked to some talented people, journalists, lawyers, hacktivists, to join us. They are the members of our board.
