On September 27th I’m going to be participating in a webinar (you get a free book for attending) with Brian Dirkling from Box, who is their director of enterprise marketing. This event is being hosted by Ping Identity which is a leader in cloud security and identity solutions. The title of the webinar is: “5 Critical Considerations When Adopting a Collaboration Platform” and we will be covering:
- An overview of the collaboration landscape
- 5 critical to-do’s to help with employee adoption of collaboration platforms
- How you can use Box to collaborate securely within your organization
I’m very excited for this webinar as it comes at a time when collaboration is becoming more widely needed and demanded by employees. A recent statistic showed that 89% of workers inside of mid-size companies are using file-sharing services that their IT organizations know nothing about. It seems that we worry about the security of collaboration platforms but what about the security risks of using platforms that your IT team doesn’t even know about? Collaboration platforms will be used within organizations one way or another so leaders might as well support these efforts instead of trying to block them!
If you’re interested in collaboration then it will be worth your time to attend this webinar. In fact, if you attend Ping Identity will give you a free copy of my new best-selling book, The Collaborative Organization (e-book version), which is the first comprehensive guide to emergent employee collaboration. The book retails at $35 in stores and was endorsed by leaders such as the former CIO of the USA, CMO of SAP, CEO of Unisys, CMO of Dell, and dozens of others. The book alone is worth attending!
