Panel: Source Code

Information security is now an established weapon in the fight to keep journalists and their sources safe, but are we in danger of encouraging people to rely on technology that they might not fully understand, thus putting them at greater risk? Are we losing sight of the traditional way in which journalists keep their sources safe – by being unpredictable, and by using our wits as much as our smartphones?

In October 2019 I took part in an Investigative Practice panel with Joseph Cox, Fabio Natali and Silkie Carlo at the Logan CIJ Symposium in London. In this seminar we identified ways to combine the old and new in journalist operational security, as well as how best to advise whistleblowers who might want to send journalists and media outlets their stories.

The report is now available with videos on the CIJ website.
