Protecting the Online Safety of Journalists in Africa

October 29, 2021
11:00 AM - 1:30 PM
Online (GMT)

Event Description

Cyberspace has become an essential vector of news and information but, faced with the desire of certain actors to control the Internet and silence dissident voices, journalists around the world are constantly the target of cyber attacks, whether reporting on crime, politics, or through the spread of disinformation. Online vulnerabilities open up possibilities for harassment and intimidation too and can often be translated offline, which prevents a free press from adequately representing and being represented by certain demographic groups, such as women.

Join our panelists who will share their experiences and discuss current policy efforts to protect journalists.
