Join us for a discussion about how to get started with Microsoft Whiteboard collaboration.  The scenarios described will be focused on the classroom, particularly in a hybrid setup, but the tips for getting started with Microsoft Whiteboard can be used across business verticals and meeting platforms to digitally collaborate or share in your virtual meetings.

Date: Friday August 28th, 2020

Topic:

Step Up Your Collaboration Game with Microsoft Whiteboard

Abstract:

Writing and drawing on a physical whiteboard in a classroom for lecture notes or to demonstrate a concept is an everyday classroom activity.  With fully remote learners, or hybrid courses and teams how do you keep those who are not physically with you engaged?  The Microsoft Whiteboard app is a great option to digitally ink your thoughts and simultaneously share them with in person and remote people alike!

In addition to showing how to get started with Whiteboard, we’ll demonstrate how this can be used with virtual meeting platforms such as Microsoft Teams to ensure your content is inclusive of both those physically present and those who are virtual.

Date: Friday March 20th, 2020

Time: 11:30a-1:00p

Topic: Data Protection in the Modern World

In today’s IT landscape, the threat model is constantly changing and drastically. The theft of data for purposes of accessing personal customer information is no longer the main driving motivation of bad actors – they are turning to threads aimed at large financial gain. In addition to attacks aimed at holding data for ransom, attacks can also be founded in political activism with the distinct purpose of data destruction in order to interrupt or destroy business. Join us to learn about these threats and how you can increase the probability of recovering your most critical business data in light of these new threat models.

We will review:

  • Overall threat landscape today
  • The cost these threats wreak on business
