Digital security for freelance journalists

Journalists need to think about how better to protect themselves, their families, colleagues and sources from digital threats, including issues ranging from online abuse to sophisticated surveillance. Media workers face a wide range of adversaries with ever-increasing tech capacity which leaves them and their sources vulnerable. This is especially true for freelancers.

💡 This recorded training covers:

  • Digital risk assessment
