Spreading the security message

On the frontlines of global reporting, knowledge is safety. CPJ’s event series to promote our new Journalist Security Guide continued Wednesday in Washington, D.C. where we teamed up with Internews for a panel discussion on journalist security on-site and online. 

On the panel were Rajiv Chandrasekaran, senior correspondent and associate editor of The Washington Post with many years of experience reporting from the world’s hot spots; CPJ Senior Adviser for Journalist Security and the main author of the guide Frank Smyth; and Danny O’Brien, CPJ’s Internet advocacy coordinator and author of the guide’s section on information security. The panel was moderated by Internews Vice-President for Asia, Environment and Internet Initiatives Kathleen Reen.

Many participants, in the room and on Ustream, took to Twitter (#JournoSecurity) to spread the message. Here is a link to the PDF version of the guide. Do us a favor; share the guide with a colleague or a friend who might need it.
