As more business gets done remotely via Unified Communications & Collaboration platforms, your enterprise may find itself confronting privacy issues it’s never encountered before. How must your enterprise adjust its policies to reflect these new privacy concerns, and how can you configure and manage your communications tools to correctly implement the new policies that may be coming? In this session, a leading expert on enterprise security and compliance will be joined by a panel of subject matter experts to discuss the specific issues that you’re likely to confront, and the technologies and best practices you’ll need in order to address the issues sufficiently and minimize risk to the business. You’ll come away with a list of action items that will let you advance your team’s awareness of emerging privacy issues in the context of UC application usage.

  • What pitfalls, both legal and cultural, are likely to become more of an issue for use of video and other collaboration technologies in international meetings?
  • What governance will be required when it comes to the user identities and systems that employees use when conducting enterprise business?
