I teach source security at Northwestern’s Medill journalism school. Here’s my course outline


Image from my 2015 cover story in In These Times magazine about working with whistleblowers.

This spring, I was commissioned by Northwestern’s Medill journalism school to prepare curriculum for, and come in person to present, a workshop on source security. The resulting workshop’s outline was audited by Micah Lee, security researcher and journalist at The Intercept, and features helpful interjections from Lee throughout.

If you want to learn more about the nitty-gritty of protecting sources, read the PDF outline above. I’ll likely be back to Northwestern to teach the workshop again this fall.
