From Pen America | Bolster Your Digital Safety: An Anti-Hacking, Anti-Doxing Workshop
Writers and journalists are increasingly expected to have an online presence and engage on social media, which puts them at risk of abuse, from impersonation and hacking to doxing (the publishing of private info). Folks who identify as women, LGBTQIA+, and/or BIPOC are disproportionately targeted. But there are concrete steps you can take to protect yourself. With your devices in hand, join PEN America and the Freedom of the Press Foundation for an interactive workshop where we’ll teach you how to outsmart the trolls. Learn how to audit your social media accounts, tighten your privacy settings, and track your personal information online so you can maintain the public profile you need to do your job. Co-hosted by PEN America, Hearken, and Freedom of the Press Foundation.
