And from Edward Snowden’s protocols to anonymous tip dropboxes, protecting information is critical — especially for journalists, whose livelihood depends on its security. Join Olivia Martin, a digital security fellow at Freedom of the Press Foundation, as she walks us through the importance of InfoSec in a digital news environment.
