When it comes to digital security, what does a journalist from West Africa, a Syrian journalist based in Turkey, and a French journalist on a reporting trip to Kashmir have in common? Answer: Very little. Each of them is working in completely different environments. They all need to protect their data, their communications, and their sources, but they must each do this in different ways, with methods adapted to their individual contexts.
Many digital freedom organisations, mainly from the US (Access, FSF, Mozilla, GNOME, etc.), are funded by or collaborating with Google or Facebook. Those two private companies make their living by selling their user personal data with complete disregard for their privacy.
We are particularly proud to announce that Nothing2Hide is now a member organization of the Global Investigative Journalist Network (GIJN).
