Cybersecurity for Journalists of Increasing Importance in Trump Era

The days when cyber security practices could reasonably be looked upon as an optional work skill for journalists are behind us. In the first weeks of the Trump administration, an unprecedented spate of leaks to news outlets such as The New York Times and The Washington Post has been responded to with demands from President Trump to identify and crack down on those anonymous officials leaking to the press.

Internet Governance Forum

On December 6, join CPJ Advocacy Director Courtney Radsch at the Internet Governance Forum. The IGF is a multistakeholder platform that faciliates the discussion of public policy issues pertaining to the internet. On Monday, December 5 at 1P.M. Courtney is organizing a session on "Countering Violent Extremism and Human Rights Online."

In the wake of terrorist attacks around the world and the ongoing fight against ISIS and other violent extremist groups, preventing and countering violent extremism (CVE) has become a major policy agenda domestically and internationally. While governments have a legitimate interest in combatting terrorism, there is concern about the impact the CVE agenda is having on human rights online, particularly in the absence of compelling data that online CVE efforts are in fact stemming the flow of foreign fighters. Governments and public petitions have called for internet platforms to remove accounts and content that promote or support extremism, expanded surveillance and profiling online, and called for restrictions on encryption all under the banner of CVE. Marginalized and at-risk communities, journalists, and activists are at particular risk as authorities have enacted initiatives aimed at combatting extremism. A joint report by Special Rapportuers on freedom of expression have recognized the threats posed by CVE, but efforts need to be made to reconcile real security threats with respect for freedom of expression and press freedom online. This panel will explore this debate from various dimensions.
