Internews' ICT Programs just released a free and open-source digital security curriculum guide for trainers.
New research reveals a widespread lack of awareness of the security risks Pakistani journalists and bloggers face in their online activities. Training in digital security and knowledge of various security tools and platforms available online, including encryption, IP blockers, VPNs, and anti-censorship software would make journalists and bloggers aware of the risks and the tools to protect themselves. In a dangerous and fluid security environment, every extra measure of safety could be critical to free these professionals to do their vital work safely and effectively.
Beyond the hype of “going digital,” many media outlets who have lead the way in multimedia content production are increasingly facing the question of what to do with all this new material, how to keep it safe, and how to share it over the long term.. A new study from the Internews Center for Innovation & Learning, “Digital Media Preservation: Why Media Organizations Can’t Archive (And What They Can Do Instead),” explains options for the safe storage of content and the associated challenges faced by organizations attempting to store large amounts of data. The study also makes recommendations for effective cataloguing and management of digital archives, allowing content within an organization to be described, discovered and re-used.
