Project PM operates this wiki in order to provide a centralized, actionable data set regarding the intelligence contracting industry, the PR industry's interface with totalitarian regimes, the mushrooming infosec/"cybersecurity" industry, and other issues constituting threats to human rights, civic transparency, individual privacy, and the health of democratic institutions.
So what is this?
Project PM is a crowdsourced investigation focused on research and analysis. If you care that the surveillance state is expanding in capabilities and intent without being effectively opposed by the population of the West, you can assist in making this an actionable resource for journalists, activists, and other interested parties.
If you'd like to contribute information without editing the wiki yourself, please email us: ppm [at] riseup.net PGP: 0xF559B662B0DF7209. If you have personal knowledge of the topics we research, please consider letting us know. More secure channels of communication can be used after we've made contact.
Project PM occasionally operates an IRC server @ irc.project-pm.org (currently down)

The founder of this initiative was arrested by the FBI in September 2012 and later pleaded guilty to three counts. He started serving a 63-month prison sentence in January 2015 and was ordered to pay $890,250 in restitution. It is important for us to help him by donating to his support network.
Project PM will remain mostly inactive and defunct until his release, with the exception of its internet properties being maintained. There is no one directing the organization in the interim.
