CBC News is launching a powerful new tool to help those with important information or sensitive documents contact our journalists using encryption and anonymous online messaging.
CBC’s SecureDrop is a web-based system that allows whistleblowers to confidentially reach CBC journalists, including those who work in investigative units across Canada and on our leading programs the fifth estate, Go Public and Marketplace.
“In an age of pervasive government surveillance, it’s an absolutely vital means to communicate safely with confidential sources and whistleblowers,” said Ryan Gallagher, of the online publication The Intercept, which has been instrumental in reporting on the global surveillance programs revealed by U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden.
“It can be used by whistleblowers inside the government, for example, to expose corruption, abuses of power, cover-ups,” Gallagher said.
CBC/Radio-Canada is one of the first national broadcasters in the world to adopt SecureDrop, which is already used by The New Yorker, The Washington Post and The Guardian. (Norway’s national broadcaster has also set up SecureDrop, while The Globe and Mail adopted the system 10 months ago.)
