Join the Online News Association in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, August 23, for ONA dCamp: Digital Security, a day-long training and design camp which will focus on how digital journalists can better protect their work and sources.
Supported by the Gannett Foundation, this facilitated, interactive workshop is for journalists, editors, designers, developers, tech support and those concerned about digital security in the newsroom.
We’ll start the day with an overview on new and emerging international/national security issues, then discuss tools journalists are using now to protect themselves and their sources. The afternoon will focus on hands-on teamwork, taking a human-centered design approach to how journalists and technologists can create better tools and processes for enhanced digital security.
Facilitators will include industry experts from CommunityRed, Freedom of the Press Foundation, International Center for Journalists, The New York Times, ProPublica, Reporters Without Borders, Stanford d.school, Tech Republic, Washington Post and more.
Attendance is limited to 75 people. Applications are due by August 12 and selected participants will be notified by August 15. The training is free but there is a $5 fee to cover the cost of meals.
