How To Protect Yourself and Your Sources

Worried about your digital security? You should be. Our communications and reporting have never been more vulnerable.

We've assembled a top-notch panel of security experts from Buzzfeed, The Intercept, and the Tactical Technology Collective. They're ready to offer invaluable advice on the best security tools and practices to protect both yourself and your sources. Find out how to safeguard your email, instant messaging, video and audio calls, and more. They'll also advise on what to you when something goes wrong, and they'll take a peek at privacy threats around the corner, like facial recognition.

Physical Protection (workshop)
With physical attacks on journalists at near-record highs, it has never been more important to take prudent measures to protect yourself, your colleagues, and your sources. Data from journalism safety organizations show that most assaults and murders are committed against journalists covering corruption, crime and politics, not wars and conflict zones. 

Two veteran journalists from the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, based in the rough-and-tumble Balkans, will talk about common-sense procedures to guard your safety. The workshop will include how to know if you're being followed or surveilled, best practices for meeting sources, and maintaining professional standards.
