About the project

helpdesk.rsf.org is a resource for journalists who want to inform and train themselves about digital security. Media production today can be threatened online in various ways, such as surveillance of communication, blocking of content, or defamation of journalists over social media. Reporters Without Borders supports journalists all over the world in their fight for freedom of expression, both through our work on the ground as well as with this website.

We provide guides for digital security concepts, give recommendations about tools and their uses, offer an interactive formula to practice individualized threat modeling, and conduct regular online webinars about digital security. Although we try to be as clear as possible and to update the website constantly, we have to indicate that the use of certain tools is always at the own risk of the individual. If want to reach out to us, please reach out to us via E-Mail.

The Helpdesk website was initiated with funding by the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises as part of the Berlin Scholarship Program: Empowering Journalists in the Digital Field by Reporters Without Borders Germany.
