RSF launches a resource platform on journalism safety - RSF

29.07.2021, 17:31
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) launches a resource platform on its website on physical safety, cybersecurity and ​​professional practices for journalists, as this is said on the website of the press freedom watchdog.

RSF launches an information and self-training platform for journalists covering Covid-19 reporting and broader issues such as physical safety, cybersecurity, legal information and mental health, currently available in English and Chinese at training.rsf.org 

The platform boasts comprehensive information on Israeli spyware, Pegasus, which was reportedly used to spy on 50,000 mobile phones , including at least 180 journalists. It also features video recordings from a series of training sessions held by RSF as well as an electronic version of the RSF Safety Guide for Journalists published in cooperation with UNESCO. 

“The platform complements the training programs operated by RSF and aims to better address the ever-growing safety concerns of independent journalists” , says RSF East Asia bureau head, Cédric Alviani. “ In the wake of the Pegasus revelation, it has never been more relevant for journalists to be aware of imminent threats to themselves and their sources. 

RSF has been operating safety training programs for nearly a decade and has reached more than 1,800 journalists from around the globe. In addition to training, RSF also offers rapid response assistance which aims to provide protection and support to threatened media and harassed or detained journalists.
