Webinar: Cyber Security for Journalists


Buzzfeed reporter Jane Lytvynenko

CMG Freelance is hosting a webinar called Cyber Security for Journalists on Tuesday, April 11 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

The webinar will focus on tangible and easy steps reporters can take to secure their everyday activities online and off. It will cover some of the best apps to use for communication, setting up PGP encryption, and other key operations security activities.

It will be led by journalist Jane Lytvynenko, a reporter for BuzzFeed news who focuses on online disinformation (yes, that means fake news). Previously Jane was the editor at media criticism publication Canadaland. Jane’s freelance work has appeared in the CBC, Maclean’s, NOW Magazine, and others.
