Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Newsrooms are often the first line of defence for journalists targeted with online abuse and smear campaigns, a scourge that threatens not only journalists but also the credibility of the news outlets. In this session, security experts and editors from The New York Times, Politico, PEN America and IPI, will discuss effective strategies implemented by media organisations: From risk assessment of individual cases to audience moderation and strategies to minimise the impact.

In partnership with PEN America.
