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.
