Online Security Guide for Journalists

Source: Proton

Whether you cover the CIA or city hall, journalism is as much about keeping secrets as exposing them. We created this online security guide to help democracy’s defenders defend themselves too.

Part of our mission at ProtonMail has always been to give journalists, dissidents, and others the tools and knowledge they need to do their jobs safely. Journalists are one of the largest groups in our user community, and over the years, we have given dozens of talks and workshops on email security in order to help journalists stay safe.

Back in September 2016, we were invited to hold a workshop at the Second Asian Investigative Journalism Conference in Kathmandu, Nepal. Like many of the workshops we have held with journalists, it was a great opportunity to gain insights from our users in the field and understand what we can do to better protect journalists and their sources.
