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.
