Description

This session is targeted towards editors and managers but has relevance for the entire newsroom. How should journalists do threat assessment -- not just of conflict zones, but of all kinds of threats: physical, digital, legal, information security? How does one create a smart, flexible strategy that can be applied to both individual reporters and broader groups of journalists? In a world full of multiplying threats, here's a panel of leading managers and advisers who spend their days thinking about this critical area.
