Overview

With the rush for Working From Home, organizations are overwhelmed with employees using video conferencing technologies, from Slack, Skype and Discord to GoToMeeting, Zoom and Webex. The only thing more overwhelming is figuring out how to use them securely. What are your security teams supposed to tell and train your workforce on? How do you handle technology and vulnerabilities changing every week? In this webcast we cover the top tips to train your workforce on, how to communicate the tips, and provide technical examples of each of the tips and how they would apply to the most common technologies. Key things include

1. How to make what you train simple so that it sticks.

2. Tips that are vendor neutral, so it does not matter what technology people use.

3. Tips that are relevant for years not weeks

4. Technical examples of each tip for some of the most common video conferencing solutions.
