Going directly to a news outlet can be problematic, unless you’re ready to out yourself because you just can’t sleep at night, and lead to your high-capacity surveillance enabled company getting back to you about it before you’re ready. A secure communications line with a human proxy can help. Happy to help. Here are some ways to reach out without using Big Tech channels.

  1. Don’t use work-related devices or services to blow your whistle.
  2. Don’t use a device running any of your employer’s services, apps, tools, etc.
  3. Don’t be at work when you do it. Maybe don’t be at home or on any network correlated with your identity.
  4. Scrub any file meta data. This may mean re-entering the content on other documents, copy pasting text, recopying images into other image files, etc.
  5. air gap the evidence.
