Ans. direktør og adm. direktør, VG - Verdens Gang AS
INVESTIGATION – Steiro is publisher of VG, the most successful Norwegian newspaper, constantly winning national and international awards for their investigative journalism and digital innovations. VG would compete for the top in an international ranking of remarkable business achievements transforming itself from a tabloid single copy sales strategy to the fastest growing subscription base in Norwegian media history. It’s ambitious «moon-landing» is to create a sustainable digital revenue base to fund their journalism completely not depending on print revenue at all. Gard Steiro is the inspirational head of this editorial beacon. He will give insights in how the mediahous became the digital powerhouse of the Schibsted Company and be rewarded best in class.
Design Lead, Adresseavisen
VISUALIZATION – Jonas Nilsson is head of digital design in regional newspaper Adresseavisen in Trondheim. Over the last 12 years Jonas has built his reputation as celebrated and awarded designer. Over the years, he has collected 40 honors and rewards. He has taken on difficult and challenging tasks and been richly awarded from audiences, colleagues and design professionals. Jonas love learning from others and sharing – in return often delivered with rough comments and inviting humor typical of his northern Norway heritage. We have invited him on a free basis to be the spice in several sessions dedicated to visual presentations and graphic design at NODA19.
Senior editorial security officer , The New York Times
Runa Sandvik var inntil for noen uker siden leder for det redaksjonelle sikkerhetsarbeidet i New York Times.
I sitt arbeid for en av verdens ledende mediebedrifter førte hun an i sentrale sikkerhetsspørsmål for redaksjonen. Det gjaldt journalistenes sikkerhet, arbeide med kildesikkerhet og dermed viktige forhold som går direkte på tilliten til ett av de fremste mediehus i verden. Sikkerheten for redaksjonen i New York Times er viktig for tilliten som må eksistere mellom medium og publikum.
I hackernes tidsalder må nye verktøy utvikles samtidig som kilder må beskyttes, journalister på oppdrag må beskyttes, innholdet og selve virksomheten vernes mot lekkasjer, angrep og trusler.
Møt Runa Sandvik, tidligere Senior Director of Information Security at The New York Times, som fortsatt brenner for disse avgjørende forholdene for en redaksjon.
