Information security for journalists I

While many of the threats to electronic communications have been discussed for decades, the revelations made by Edward Snowden showed us the scope and scale of the intrusion on our basic rights as humans and as data professionals. When dealing with confidential information and conducting sensitive investigations you need to be able to protect your sources, yourself and your story (in that order). This means securing both content and meta-data relating to any communications you have by electronic or other means.

In the case of journalists, the ability to effectively provide confidentiality could determine if sources will communicate at all. Glenn Greenwald was almost passed over for the scoop of a lifetime because he did not have encrypted email on his laptop at the time Snowden was trying to contact him.

Arjen Kamphuis will teach you what tools to use (and not use) under certain conditions and how to overcome state-level attacks on your communications on a shoestring budget should you need it.
