Information Security

The task of source protection is arguably the most important responsibility for a serious investigative journalist.

A crucial question for investigative journalists is how to marry information and communication technology with the need for security and privacy? Drawing on guides and programmes from the ‘security in a box’ toolkit, this course gives practical advice on how to protect your computer’s anonymity online and ensure security and privacy for your communications. Various tools for encryption and circumvention are demonstrated and analysed.

If you want to hear from whistleblowers with tip-offs, then making sure they can trust you to keep their communications confidential is essential.
