Decrypted: Teaching Journalists to Talk Tech

National Press Club
November 7


Thanks to the generosity of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the National Security Institute hosted a series of journalist trainings.  Each session consisted of an off-the-record policy briefing that will help attendees identify future pitches, as well as new angles on existing stories to take to your next pitch meeting and a networking session which will give attendees an opportunity to build a rolodex of expert sources for your next story.

The final event took place on Thursday, November 7.  It featured:

  • Dmitri Alperovitch, Co-Founder and CTO of CrowdStrike Inc.; NSI Visiting Fellow
  • Olivia Gazis, Reporter, Intelligence & National Security Reporter, CBS News
  • Lauren Bedula, Vice President of Beacon Global Strategies; NSI Visiting Fellow
  • Beth Cartier, Senior Manager of Cybersecurity, Ernst and Young; NSI Visiting Fellow
