Description

Creates a private online meeting space where “conference” attendees can join channels – similar to “break-out sessions” – on specific topics. The platform also supports video and audio calls, but more advanced webinar tools should be used for the more formal presentations of the conference.

 

Notes

Pricing

  • Tiered pricing system with both a free option and an option to work on a case by case basis with organizations to best fit their needs

 

Cybersecurity Considerations

  • Slack is innovator of this “workspace” approach to messaging
  • Has more features, customizations, and third-party integrations than other messaging apps
  • Does not have end-to-end encryption, instead using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure communication.
