Operational resource aimed at helping small newsrooms shore-up their cybersecurity practices

Today the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) released the GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Journalists at the 2020 Online News Association conference. The toolkit is a free, operational resource aimed at helping journalists, watchdogs, and small newsrooms shore-up their cybersecurity practices. Journalists around the world have long been targets of cyber attacks, whether reporting on crime, politics, or simply being a target for the spread of disinformation. Recent examples include an Angolan journalist reporting on the embezzlement of public funds and two Turkish journalists whose accounts and devices were compromised after reporting on the death of Turkish soldiers in Libya.   In order to provide some practical resources to manage these risks, GCA assembled a set of tools that journalists can use to shore up their cyber defenses, protect their devices and data, and help safeguard their online presence.
