Media resilience and its development
Media Pool’s work to promote the security of supply ensures the working conditions for independent
journalistic news media in all circumstances, during normal times and crises, and in emergencies. Its aim
to secure citizens’ right to receive reliable and factual information in all situations.
The promotion of the security of supply prepares for threats
Resilience is a key concept in the promotion of the security of supply. Resilience means the ability to
in changing circumstances, confront disturbances and crises as well as recover from such situations.
In the development of the resilience of news media, Media Pool prepares for potential threats by, for
example, securing the conditions in which the media operates. The key features of this work include
cybersecurity know-how, the recognition and tackling of disinformation in daily editorial work, the
operations and transparency of social media platforms and algorithms as well as international cooperation
As the threats to news media and its operational environment are global, domestic and international
cooperation have become an integral part of Media Pool’s operations. Cooperation supports the media
industry’s knowledge in hybrid influencing by hostile actors, cybersecurity and preparation for
disinformation and other potential threats.
Similarly, cooperation with authorities as well as research and other organisations has become
important in the development of resilience. International operations aim to draw policy-makers’ attention
those weaknesses in legislation that enable information influencing by hostile actors, harassment of
journalists and reduce cybersecurity and press freedom.
