As journalists are increasingly expected to have an online presence through social media and other platforms, abusive trolls have joined forces to intimidate, discredit and silence them. As we approach the 2022 U.S. midterm elections, we expect these tactics to continue to grow. Bring your devices for this hands-on clinic, led by PEN America and The International Women’s Media Foundation, where we'll show you how to strengthen the security of your online presence to make yourself less vulnerable to hacking, doxxing, impersonation and other abuse. You'll walk away safer and with a better understanding of how to help prepare and protect yourself from harassment targeting you and your team.
This session is designed for:
- Journalists covering any issues around elections, politics, or extremism
- Journalists who want to make sure they are protected from doxxing, hacking and other forms of abuse
- Anyone who uses a phone, email or social media, or anyone with an online presence
