Soghoian: " Without Computer Security, Sources’ Secrets Aren’t Safe With Journalists"
Christopher Soghoian's NYT op-ed
on one important lesson from Wikileaks: infosec for journalists and their sources. "Sadly, operational computer security is still not taught in most journalism schools, and poor data security practices remain widespread in news organizations. Confidential information is sent over regular phone lines and via text messages and e-mail, all of which are easy to intercept. Few journalists use secure-communication tools, even ones that are widely available and easy to use."
