Yale Law School is set to hold a journalism conference on November 29th, 2012, examining the difficulties of protecting sources in the digital age. The conference, “Protecting Journalism: Anonymous and Secure Communications for Reporters and Sources” is funded by the Information Society Project and the Knight Law and Media Program at Yale Law School. Journalists and other professionals will join in a discussion about what measures can be taken to protect sources and how current technologies can help or hinder these aims. The event is open to the public and will feature three panel discussions, including “Tradeoff Between Security and Usability,” “The Gap Between Security Risks and Security Practices,” and “The Faith in Anonymous and Secure Communications.”
