Presented by

About this talk

If you weren’t using collaboration platforms very much before the coronavirus pandemic hit, chances are you are now. Collaboration platforms like Slack, Microsoft Teams and Zoom have been thrust into the spotlight. Their vital role in supporting remote-working—which looks set to remain permanently to some extent for many firms—is a double-edged sword. On the one side, productivity gains and cost savings have been considerable. On the other, with staff able to freely send messages and work-related documents outside of usual communications channels, collaboration platforms have created a high risk e-communications blind spot that is setting alarm bells ringing—as discussed in our blog, How to protect your business from growing eComms risk. . Join our webinar to learn: • The key steps your business should take to reduce the risk from using collaboration platforms • How to reap the rewards of collaboration without compromising eDiscovery and compliance • What has changed in the way we communicate to make information governance more challenging • The challenges of collaborative working, the exposure for your firm—and how to avoid it • What to look for when considering solutions to mitigate your e-communications risk
