HRJN to train Journalists on Open-Source Intelligence 

The Human Rights Journalists Network (HRJN) sets to hold its monthly training for journalists on the theme ‘Open-Source Intelligence: Advancing Your Investigative Skills’.

This is part of HRJN’s effort to build the capacity of media practitioner across Nigeria.

In a press statement issued by Kehinde Adegboyega, Coordinator, HRJN, he disclosed that Bertram Hill, BBC Open Source Intelligence Journalist, would facilitate the training session which is scheduled to hold on 20, February 2021.

The training, according to the coordinator, “will help journalists to understand how to use tools and information online for verification, fact-checking and deep investigative research.”

Adegboyega stressed that with the current trends in the Nigeria media landscape, it is essential that journalists “understand the way information is structured on the internet and the methods and tools used by law enforcement and security services to uncover evidence that would never otherwise be available.

“The session will equip journalists with the skills to go beyond Google and access information and open-source intelligence that is freely available online but is often hidden.”
