Journalism and Digital Security

Panel
26 June 2020
19:00 SGT

While digital transformation of the Media (and all other areas of society) unfolds tirelessly, digital work security protocols and protection of personal and sensitive information does not always follow as quickly. The Media is exposed to this issue on many levels: Whistleblowers and investigative journalists must be protected, along with their data. News sites and social media are under attack, be it threatened by hackers or by the soft power of socially engineered fake news and forum trolls. Journalists have to keep up with tech skills and the latest encryption software, all while facing an uncertain future as traditional revenue models crumble. Hear from our experts on how they deal with these challenges.
