FCC Infosec 101: Protect Your Data, Protect Your Sources

I joined Leonhard Weese and Fabian Lischka in leading a 60 minute workshop on information security and encryption for journalists at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in Central, Hong Kong.

Our goal was to give journalists some basic steps they could take to improve the security of the information the collect in the course of their reporting.

Our interactive talk had the following agenda:

  • Explain what encryption is
  • Protect your device by:
    • downloading from trusted sources
    • recognizing phishing attacks
    • looking for https connections
  • Project your accounts by:
    • selecting good passwords
    • using a password manager
    • using two factor authentication
  • Protect your communications by:
    • using Redphone/Textsecure/Signal
    • using Telegram Secret Chats
