Join us for Virtual Team Talk

Sococo has a new "meetings" feature, which makes it easy to organise meetings in the space and also to tap someone on the shoulder to let them know you want to talk to them, and they can easily refused.

The Main Conversation

We're looking at security from three points of view. From the organisation: Can I trust the people? Can i trust the tools? And for both organisations and individuals "Am i/Are we safe?"

Having a policy. 

Remember that people can look over your shoulder and read your emails...

Can employees from the external tools we use read our data?
