Toronto workshop: Privacy and digital security at the border

Toronto-area freelancers are invited to a free, hands-on workshop about digital security and privacy for journalists when crossing borders. It’s scheduled for June 12th from 6:15-9:30 pm at the Transmedia Zone (Ryerson University).

The workshop will be led by Harlo Holmes, the director of newsroom digital security at Freedom of the Press Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting and advocating on behalf of public-interest journalism. Harlo will cover common scenarios that journalists might face when crossing borders. She’ll teach participants how to work more securely, protect their data, and keep sources, colleagues, and communities safer.

The workshop is being run by #OffAssignment Toronto, a community-based organization that hosts events for freelance journalists and independent media-makers in Toronto. It is sponsored in part by CMG Freelance.

Space is limited, and you can reserve your free ticket to this event on this Eventbrite page.
