A 2-hour session in 2 parts (they can be scheduked consecutively or separately)
The session will bring together journalists and developers to look at digital security from the field and brodge the apparent separation between these activities. Journalists and developers live in different planets in the way they view technology and security, and speak different languages. Bringing both together can help journalsits learn what can and can't be done in digital securitym and help developers make more useful and user-friendly tools.
The first session is a "trip to the real world". How do journalists experience digital security on the ground? What are their needs, what tools woull they like to have? What are the difficulties they face when they apply a DigiSec plan? It's important that developers hear this and learn from these experiences. It is equally important for developers to warn journalists about what can or can't be done in terms of tools or programs and of the consequences of flawed DigiSec plans.
The second session would be one in which participants tell each other about their "fails", the screw-ups and mistakes they have mande when using a DigiSec tool or implementing a plan. Journalists and developers can talk about what has gone wrong for them and the lessons they learned so they can better relate to experiences on the field.
