Reporters are good at collecting data -- both paper and digital -- and some even know how to scrape or access databases. But then what do you do? Most let their data sit idle and rarely use it to their full potential. Find out how you can better manage your information. Learn what some organizations are doing to better use their data. Discuss how your organizations can structure a system in which they can access all their data safely and easily. 

This session is done in collaboration with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP).
