IMPRESS Announces Partnership with the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA)

IMPRESS has announced a partnership with the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA), an international, cross-sector organisation which is dedicated to reducing cyber risk and uniting global communities.

Through this collaboration, IMPRESS and GCA will provide news publishers in the UK with practical advice around the GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Journalists. The toolkit will support publishers to better adhere to the IMPRESS Standards Code, especially with regards to ensuring secure systems to manage the confidentiality of sources, as well as additional data protection obligations.

“We look forward to working with GCA to provide publishers – especially those with less access to these systems and knowledge – with effective cybersecurity guidance and support. This can enhance their commitment to high standards and accountable journalism, as shown by their joining IMPRESS.”

Megan Stifel, GCA Executive Director, Americas and Director of the Craig Newmark Trustworthy Internet and Democracy Program said:

“This partnership is a great step toward bringing the GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Journalists to the international community, in particular the journalism community in the United Kingdom. Partnership with IMPRESS will help us continue to provide relevant tools and resources, while engaging with the journalism community to ensure trustworthy information.”
