Now more than ever, reporters must use good security practices when newsgathering and communicating with sources. A free training session scheduled for March 2 in San Francisco will help journalists learn how to assess security threats, protect sources, use secure text messaging software, and more.

The training session will be led by digital security experts from the Electronic Frontier Foundation including Security Engineer/Technologist Bill Budington and Senior Staff Attorney Mitch Stoltz. This event is hosted by SPJ NorCal, the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Click here to register. Space is limited. Beer will be served. Donations accepted to support SPJ programming.
