Digital technologies have become incredibly vital to journalism work, but this has also resulted in an increase in the number of tools and platforms that may be used against journalists as a means of surveillance, identification, and harassment by both state and non-state actors.

Most victims of online abuse are reluctant to disclose the matter, which is aggravated by the victim shaming that occurs.
