COVID accelerated the move to remote work but did so with most technology vendors ignoring the
longstanding challenges around information sharing when an organization sends data beyond its
perimeter and outside its control. In this webinar we will address the following and provide a practical
roadmap to effectively and securely share knowledge even with your competitors.

  • Why is data sharing still hard even with hundreds of new collaboration tools since COVID?
  • Why the need and challenges for data collaboration is the same for vaccine researchers, investment
  • managers, threat hunters, and Navy Seals?
  • Why security, while important, has failed to meet the needs of data sharing and Zero Trust?
