Agenda: Exploring leaked email datasets for anti-capitalist purposes

The hacktivist group Anonymous has been publishing terabytes of leaked emails from Russian companies following the invasion of Ukraine. Another group called Guacamaya has recently released 2TB of leaked emails from oil and mining companies in Latin America.
How can we as activists and journalists make use of all this data? How to access the data? What software to use to read emails? How to keep your computer safe from phishing links and malware? How to search through an archive of millions of emails and find the interesting bits?

The workshop assumes some technical knowledge like knowing what a Virtual Machine and a Docker container is. While the workshop does not directly cover the legality and morality of looking at leaked data, this topic is open to a discussion afterwards.
