Stay Secure While Using Collaboration Platforms

COVID-19 has brought on a rapid shift to remote work. Many
organizations were unprepared, so they quickly turned to collaboration
platforms that could help employees get back to work. But with more
applications comes a bigger attack surface.

On today’s Eye on Security podcast, Luke McNamara, Principal Analyst
for Mandiant Threat Intelligence talks with Marcus Troiano, Managing
Consultant for Mandiant, about collaboration platform security.

We begin the episode by discussing overall best practices for
collaboration tools, including those used for chatting, video and
audio conferencing, and file sharing. The increased use of these tools
has made them a bigger target of attackers and organizations need to
ensure employees are aware of and protected against relevant threats.

Later in the episode, Marcus and Luke discuss issues surrounding the
use of personal devices for work, which can lead to issues such as
accidental data leakage. We also provide a list of recommendations on
how to keep virtual meetings secure so no one can listen in on a
meeting, as well as how to properly share a screen without
inadvertently disclosing confidential data.
