Security officers are an important component of the security for media organizations. They are responsible for minimizing 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 prepared in the back office - at the headquarters, in the Newsroom and with IT. A number of policies and plans have to be put in place.
This is the 14th meeting of the security officers and the group promotes a supportive working environment.
Come and join us. You will be able to discuss your personal concerns and challenges with fellow experts and find support and ideas.
