The New Yorker tries out a new distribution method, information security for journalists, Gannett's content management system and more are found in this week's Digital Media Mash Up, produced by the Center for International Media Assistance.

Here are IJNet's picks from this week's stories:

The New Yorker alters its online strategy

The New Yorker is overhauling its website and making all the articles it has published since 2007 available free for three months before introducing a paywall for online subscribers. (The New York Times, 7/8)

Information security for journalists: the bigger picture

“Digital” security for journalists is intrinsically linked with information security, but the two are not necessarily the same. It’s important to understand information security to maximize digital security. (PBS Idea Lab, 6/27)

Case study: Gannett’s monumental task - a content management system for all

In 2011, Gannett Co. owned more than a hundred newspapers and television stations – each with its own website. To publish its online material, the company was supporting about a half dozen content management systems. (Poynter, 7/3)

Journalism’s nonprofit surge

"It’s starting to have that startup feel,” said Bill Keller, stepping into his new office on the 25th floor of 250 West 57th Street. The former New York Times executive editor is now at The Marshall Project, a nonprofit journalism organization that will unleash its firepower on the U.S. criminal justice system when it launches later this year. (Capital, 7/1)
