This chapter adopts an intersectional approach to examining the interconnections existing between digitalisation and both the positive and negative aspects of personal and community security in the everyday lives of Sámi persons with disabilities living in Finland. Based on interviews conducted with Sámi persons with disabilities, the chapter provides an analysis of the concrete and complex ways in which digitalisation and personal security interact and intersect in the everyday lives of the interviewees. Then, the discussion turns to the intersection of digitalisation and community security, particularly its cultural aspects, such as languages, traditional livelihoods and connection to Sámi communities. This chapter emphasises the importance of considering the heterogeneity and multiple identities of minority groups—which give rise to special needs—when designing future digital solutions.
