On April 25, 2017, CLTC was honored to host Tom Lowenthal, Staff Technologist for the Committee to Protect Journalists, for a lunch seminar entitled “Won’t Somebody Think of the Journalists?”. Formerly a paranoia advocate at Mozilla and the Tor Project’s coordinator, Lowenthal specializes in operational security and grassroots surveillance self-defense. In his presentation, he outlined the importance of broad security and privacy protections in today’s media landscape, in which anyone can be a journalist. He also provided an overview of some basic measures that journalists (and others) can follow to increase their online privacy and security. The video can be seen below.
