Hi, I’m Alex Haydock.

I’m a Master in Law graduate with a particular interest in digital rights, civil liberties, and the regulation of technology and the internet.

I currently carry out work as a legal consultant for the Open Rights Group, and was previously employed in their London office as a Legal Officer.

I also spend time organising events and meetups for people interested in digital security, privacy and anonymity. Recently, these events have included a series of CryptoParties in the North East of England — free workshops that teach practical cryptography and digital security to members of the public.

I am also active on Twitter, on GitHub, and occasionally on Medium.

I can be contacted at alex@alexhaydock.co.uk.

My preferred methods of contact are Signal or encrypted email. You can find my PGP key here or email me to ask for my Signal ID.
