Whether covering a local beat or investigating national security, journalists must make deliberate decisions about how they protect their devices, communications, and sensitive data, particularly in an era of mass surveillance, data breaches, and targeted hacking. However, there is no suite of tools or practices that will fit all circumstances, and the field of options can be daunting. The panelists will provide an overview of basic threat modeling, device security, encrypted communications, and an array of online resources that can help inform newsroom discussions about these critical issues as the risks facing journalists evolve. 

Speakers: Jorge Luis Sierra of Border Center for Journalists and Bloggers; Neena Kapur of The New York Times; Kristen Kozinski of The New York Times; Dave Maass of Electronic Frontier Foundation
