Slack, Skype, WhatsApp – mobile messaging platforms are the communication standard, but businesses might get themselves into costly compliance and privacy issues if they do not implement encryption into their mobile messaging platform. From security breaches to Russian hackers, security and control are necessary when it comes to business communication platforms. Some companies have prohibited Slack and WhatsApp in the workplace for the sake of safety, but security also should not hinder productivity. Anurag Lal and 451 Research will discuss the importance of security in mobile messaging, the consequences of compliance and privacy issues, and how to identify the best communication platform for your business.
