Netzpalaver: Collaboration tools - flexibility with risk potential
The familiar working world has evolved through Corona: Collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, WebEx and Co. have made their way into the everyday work of many companies during the pandemic - and they will stay. According to a recent study from Mimecast, one of the leading providers of data and e-mail security, almost two thirds of the German companies surveyed state that the use of collaboration tools has increased in the past twelve months.
In addition to securing corporate processes, collaboration tools also create challenges for corporate IT and offer a new gateway for cyber criminals. Since the use of the tools will not decrease in the foreseeable future, companies must act to prepare themselves against new cyberattacks.
