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.

Portrait without encounter – Investigative online research
Jeff Goolsby is a passionate supporter of the conservative Tea Party. The 32 year old admires and supports libertarian politicians like Senator Rand Paul or the ultra-conservative multimillionaire Steve Forbes. Which does not stop him from living the life of a gay real estate agent in New York. Or sometimes even that of "Jeffrina", dressed in a tight fitted black evening gown and wearing a shiny pearl necklace. Boris Kartheuser portrays Goolsby's life in detail for Swiss magazine NZZ Folio. Without ever having talked to the protagonist. The story is the result of a very extended web research. Investigative journalist Kartheuser shows on the basis of the portrait how operator-searches, whois information, databases, site-ripping and social media can be used to get the best results. www.investigativerecherche.de, http://folio.nzz.ch/2014/oktober/ist-das-ein-portrait, http://folio.nzz.ch/2014/oktober/nachtrag-ist-das-ein-portrait

Information security for journalists II
(You need to have attended session 'Information security for journalists I' to be able to attend this workshop. Bring your own computer. For the hands-on part of the workshop the CIJ Logan Infosec handbook will be used: http://www.tcij.org/resources/handbooks/infosec)

For 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.

Journalists and citizens have now begun to include their email encryption PGP/GPG key fingerprint on their business cards and in their email signatures, so potential contacts know there is the option of secure communication. Encrypting email will be one of the options you'll have at your disposal at the end of the workshop as well as anonymous browsing and the ability to encrypt files for safe storage.

The software is free (as in cost and free-as-in-freedom, more on that in the course). It runs on any post-2007 laptop that has Windows, Linux or MacOSX on it. To be secure your installed software must still be supported (so no Windows XP for instance). Because of the very different technical internal workings of tablets and smartphones we currently do not support them. The CIJ handbook has a more detailed explanation of our reasons for this.
