Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

A lot of Wikimedians consider digital security as something needed in other spaces - not on the Wikimedia projects. Through their work as a Trust and Safety specialists for the Wikimedia Foundation, Samuel and Christel have become aware of many different reasons why it is also of high importance on-wiki.
