This podcast looks at how to secure your computer to protect both yourself and your sources.

Security experts and an investigative journalist outline the dangers and offer solutions.

They explain how journalists can communicate securely by email, safely store information on a computer, and they share advice on preventing a Twitter account hack.

Sarah Marshall, technology editor at Journalism.co.uk, speaks to:

  • Lyra McKee, investigative journalist and founder of The Muckraker, an investigative news blog for Northern Ireland
  • Brian Honan, an independent security consultant at BH Consulting
