A local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF) will host this event:
In the past decade, media organizations and newsrooms have become high value targets for digital attacks. Whether it is governments purchasing spyware to illegally surveil reporters in the diaspora, like the government of Ethiopia has been caught doing twice, or information campaigns to discredit news sources, newsrooms have become targets of government 'cyber warfare'.
Activist and educator Norman Shamas will lead a conversation on some of the current threats and the state of security in newsrooms in the U.S. and around the globe (primary focus on South Africa) followed by a conversation on a new training guide for U.S.-based newsrooms.
Monday, September 17
6:00pm - 8:00pm
1208 SW 13th Ave., 2nd Floor
Portland, OR 97205
This event is organized not by EFF, but by Portland's Techno Activism 3rd Mondays—a grassroots group participating in the Electronic Frontier Alliance. The EFA is a network of grassroots organizations across the country committed to promoting digital rights. Together, we're building a movement to promote freedom of expression, privacy, security, creativity, and access to knowledge.
