Realizing that sources may need more secure methods of contacting journalists than "the plain old telephone", modern media organizations worldwide have begun to look towards consumer-facing mobile apps (Signal, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc.) to create tiplines that can boast communications with increased confidentiality. While this switch is a welcome improvement in maintaining source protection, it also comes with a new set of technical, logistical, and legal challenges. This session will address how major news orgs structure their tiplines; grapple with vulnerabilities while maximizing various security features; and craft proactive responses to legal, operational, and technical disasters. Participants are encouraged to bring their computers, as we will try some of the discussed techniques.
