Journalists writing about certain issues face a harrowing digital threat: Anonymous internet users may publish your -- or your family’s -- contact info, as well as other personal details. This often comes with threats, obscene photos and other graphic abuse. We’ll discuss how journalists, their editors and employers can be better prepared for doxxing, and what to do when it happens. From setting up a Post Office box to being more vigilant about the information you send over email, any journalist can make it harder for potential harassers to find sensitive information.
