12th Network & Learn for security officers

Security officers have become an important component of the security of our media organizations. They have to minimize the risks for journalists and reporters working in the field by providing them with adequate preparation and training. They also have to ensure that everything is set and ready in the back office - at the headquarters, in the Newsroom and with IT. Some policies and plans have to be put in place.

This is the 12th time that the security officers meet together. The group is now strong and reliable, they help each other.

Come and join: you will be able to discuss your personal concerns and challenges with your fellows and experts in safety and security and find support and ideas.
