It's no longer possible to be in the news media without being security savvy.

Edward Snowden's NSA leaks, FBI subpoenas of reporters' phone records, and frequent hack attacks directed against news organizations -- all of these prove that we're living in a time when journalists need cybersecurity skills. 

Whether to protect the sacred bond between reporters and sources or to protect the credibility and availability of a major news website, those in the media must know what security tools are available and how to use them. And the security industry must know what journalists need, and how existing tools fall short.Cybersecurity and Media: All the News That's Fit to Protect?  

In this panel, reporters and IT pros will describe how security issues have affected them. We'll discuss leading-edge software and best practices to protect the newsroom. And we'll create a wishlist for the software and services needed to protect journalism's role as the 24/7, real-time, global clearinghouse of the information economy.
