Details Journalists and information technology specialists will meet to discuss the challenges facing journalists trying to safeguard source confidentiality in the digital age. The surveillance capabilities of digital technology threaten the journalistic mandate to keep the identity of sources secret, say the organizers, and this conference explores what measures are available to protect it, which ones are being used, and which ones are actually effective. Panel discussions on: “The Gap Between Security Risks and Security Practices,” “The Faith in Anonymous and Secure Communications,” and “The Tradeoff Between Security and Usability.” Complete info on conference website: http://www.law.yale.edu/intellectuallife/protectingJournalism.htm
