Overview

The world is an increasingly dangerous place for journalists. Each year, dozens are killed and thousands are imprisoned, attacked, or threatened. Digital technology enables governments and criminals to monitor journalists and intercept their communications. And today more freelancers than ever are reporting on the front lines of major stories—with most responsible for their own preparation, equipment, and care.

The CPJ Journalist Security Guide provides detailed advice to local and international journalists of all experience levels. Written by experts with the Committee to Protect Journalists, a nonprofit organization that defends journalists worldwide, the guide outlines basic preparedness for new reporters taking on their first assignments. It offers refresher information for seasoned journalists returning to the field. And it provides advice on complex issues such as digital security and threat assessment for all journalists.
