The social fabric of cyberspace is as important as the physical world. From commerce to sex, every interaction is mirrored online. Traditional media feel left behind by bloggers, social media, and the race into cyberspace – but that race has just begun. The next-generation news organisation will be agile and smart. It will apply the trusted techniques of traditional journalism to the online world. Speed is just as important as accuracy – and both can be won.
The SecDev training programme considers how journalism has changed, and offers solutions for media professionals to break the news without compromising credibility and integrity in a real-time digital age.
