Countless journalists have been victim to doxxing, which is when someone publishes private and/or identifying information about specific individuals on publicly-accessible websites, with malicious intent. With the aid of social media, doxxing outlets have become sinister tools often used to intimidate, harass, and invade people’s privacy. Media professionals are especially at risk: Your work is public, your name is recognizable, and someone may choose to target you simply because they disagree with what you say or because of your employer.

Led by Harlo Holmes, the Director of Newsroom Digital Security at the Freedom of the Press Foundation, this two-hour workshop explores practical and legal questions about doxxing and the media industry, including advice on how to prevent it from happening to you and what to do if you have been targeted. 

Join us on September 23, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. ET via Zoom for Defense Against the Doxx Arts as part of the Guild’s Digital Security Series. 

RSVP HERE.

As more of our personal and professional lives go digital, online hate and harassment are on the rise. Abusive trolls join forces to disproportionately target BIPOCs, women, and LGBTQIA+ folks to intimidate, discredit, and silence. Each and every one of us can be an ally. In this free, one-hour, interactive training, we’ll give you the tools you need to intervene safely and effectively in online abuse using Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention. First, we’ll talk through what online harassment is and how to identify abusive tactics. We’ll discuss the severe impact online abuse can have—on wellbeing, livelihoods, and free expression—and how it’s drowning out voices that urgently need to be heard in public discourse. Then, we’ll share concrete strategies for how to distract, delegate, document, delay, or directly intervene in a way that is safe, effective, and centered on the needs of the person being targeted. We’ll have time to practice so you can leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see someone being abused online. We hope you’ll join us to learn how we can all band together to make the internet a safer, more diverse, and more equitable place.
