The Citizen Clinic (Info 289 / Cyber 289*) is a public-interest cybersecurity course that supports the capacity of politically-targeted organizations to defend themselves against online threats.

Citizen Clinic is the first public interest cybersecurity clinic of its kind. The clinic, sponsored by the Berkeley School of Information, provides interdisciplinary teams of students with hands-on experience developing and implementing cybersecurity practices for politically vulnerable organizations.
