In this age of digital surveillance, amid a global backlash against an independent, watchdog press, protecting our sources and reporting methods has never been more important. In this important panel you can hear experts on how to encourage and protect whistleblowers and leakers, including how to install a secure digital drop box. Our speakers will talk about best practices in the context of reporting experiences ranging from The Panama Papers mass leaks to uncovering corruption and malfeasance in Africa and Latin American.
