The New CPJ Journalist Security Guide
As hundreds of journalists are attacked, jailed, threatened, or placed under surveillance each year, the Committee to Protect Journalists has launched a new Journalist Security Guide to help reporters assess and deter risk.
The interactive guide, created by CPJ experts, provides a blueprint for local and international journalists of all experience levels to take concrete steps for their physical and digital safety. Protecting digital information, preparing for armed conflict, covering organized crime and corruption, and mitigating the risk of sexual violence are among vital topics included in the guide.
