Keep your sources and your secrets safe from prying eyes. In IRE’s latest webinar, Steve Doig, Knight Chair in Journalism at Arizona State University, explains spycraft for journalists.

This webinar covers the use of cryptography, spoofing caller ID, anonymous email, throwaway phones, steganography and other covert techniques for communicating with sources without leaving a trail. Doig gave this presentation to an overflow crowd at the June IRE Conference in San Antonio.

Spycraft for Journalists is the first in a new collection of webinars for IRE members. Tomorrow watch for “Search Strategies, Sites and Databases for Investigative Reporting.” You’ll learn from Barbara Gray, Distinguished Lecturer & Interim Chief Librarian at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism and a former Director of News Research at The New York Times.
