Investigative Skills Training in Berlin
The CIJ is delighted to announce two days of investigative training in Berlin, to be hosted by CORRECT!V, the first non-profit investigative newsroom in the German-speaking countries.   The first day will cover advanced search techniques; using social networking sites as an investigative tool and introducing participants to the ‘hidden web’.   Day two will introduce the methods and tools that journalists and citizens need to keep themselves and their sources and confidential contacts safe from digital surveillance.

Both days will be held at CORRECT!V, Singerstrasse 109, first floor, close to S-U-Jannowitzbruecke and U-Strausberger Platz, Berlin
