Digital Safety Training for Ukrainian Journalists and Civil Society

Natalia Antonova

SUMMARY

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing destruction, death, and instability, deeply disrupting Ukrainian society. The Kremlin and its operatives are actively utilizing intimidation, disinformation and propaganda, censorship, cyber attacks, and various other means to restrict and influence the movement of information throughout Ukraine, Russia, and the international community.

With such ongoing tactics, every Ukrainian citizen, journalist, advocate, and government official with access to potentially sensitive information—including those in contact with at-risk populations—should exercise heightened caution and discretion.

According to the United States and Western governments, Russia maintains lists of key people to capture and potentially kill on Ukrainian territory. This means that safeguarding key information is of utmost importance in resisting the Russian threat.

This guide intends to provide practical tips to safeguard your digital activities and improve your digital hygiene. For the purpose of this guide, we define digital hygiene as a set of regular practices to keep one’s digital assets and footprint secure.
