Talking Data to the Fourth Pillar: Safeguarding Fourth Pillar through Data Privacy, Protection, and Safety Awareness Programme
Campaign description: The campaign aims at developing an understanding of the concept of privacy, data protection and online safety, to facilitate and enable the journalist community to make informed choices while pursuing journalism. A four-part module has been developed to address the following four questions respectively: 1) What is privacy, and why is it essential to journalists? 2) What digital privacy threats do journalists face? 3) How can journalists keep themselves safe; what platforms and practices maximize journalists’ safety and privacy? and 4) What do journalists need to know to make privacy understandable for the general audience? What hot-button issues do Indian and Bangladeshi journalists need to educate the general public about?
