Event Details

‘Journalism is fundamentally broken’, a quote by Dutch journalist Joris Luyendijk.
Because it is broken our public is disappointed in us.
So how do we fix this?
How do regain the trust of our public back?

Technology can be a part of the answer.

Journalists should see it as their duty to for example protect their (anonymous) sources. But do they know how they should do this?
Do they have the right skills to be a step ahead and to get the trust of whistle-blowers to make revealing stories?

In a short talk, Kwinten Rummens from SecuroJourno will highlight what journalists can do to step up their game to protect themselves and their sources. Because the technology is there, we just don’t know how to use it.
Further on, Ricardo Mendes from Armada.digital will briefly explain what they do to protect activists online.

After these two talks it’s up to the public to go in discussion with our panel and ask further questions.
