Volunteers across Canada recently made a commitment to help Canadian journalists get up-to-speed with basic online security practices. As a start, security "boot camps” for professional reporters will be held across the country starting in May with this event in Vancouver. There is a similar event happening in Toronto later in the month.
In Vancouver, we are going to start with a small, hands-on workshop that will help you to:
- Assess your own security risk level
- Understand how security fails and why
- Install the necessary software to protect your identity, and your sources' identities, online
It may sound dry, but we promise that it will be fun, fast, and will involve at least one game! You will leave with the tools and knowledge needed to feel more secure about protecting your own privacy online, as well as that of your sources.
