Digital and Mobile Security for Journalists and Bloggers - Arabic

The Digital and Mobile Security Manual, a guide that offers advice to reporters and bloggers on creating risk-reduction plans and digital and mobile security protocols, is now available for Arabic-speaking journalists. Written by Knight International Journalism Fellow Jorge Luis Sierra with support from Freedom House and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), the manual explains how journalists and citizen reporters can use new digital security tools to improve their online safety.

The guide aims to create a new culture of digital security for journalists to help them protect their sources, safeguard the information they gather, and ultimately ensure their own digital, physical, legal and psychological security. The new manual includes links to Arabic-language online tutorials and resources, many of them also developed by Sierra, to address the specific needs of journalists in Arabic-speaking countries.
