About this course

Welcome! We're so glad you're here. 

You've decided to explore the Slack Security Badge because you're either an administrator, security professional or ready to learn more about what it takes to keep Slack secure.

If you want to learn how to use Slack to meet your formal and informal compliance requirements, and ensure your data stays both safe and accessible, you're in the right place! 

During the course of this badge, we'll cover several topics that will give you valuable skills to make decisions and implement security choices for organizations of any size. 

 

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Whether you're new to the world of data protection or a seasoned professional, learn how to integrate Slack's Discovery API with the security broker of your choice to prevent data leaks before they happen.

 

eDiscovery

eDiscovery has expanded from just a litigation tool to a powerful resource for finding, retaining, and documenting conversations and data contained in your Slack environment. Learn how to integrate Slack's Discovery API into your organization's account. 

 

Data exports

In this section, we'll cover what types of data can be exported from Slack, the export process and how to read Slack JSON export files. 

 

Data retention

Here you'll learn best practices for controlling what data can (and cannot) be deleted from Slack on the organization, workspace and individual level. 

 

Compliance considerations

Whether your organization is governed by formal compliance regulations (FINRA, HIPAA, GDPR, etc) or internal HR policies, make informed decisions on using Slack to meet your obligations. 

 

At the end of this workshop, you'll be able to:

  • Explain Slack data protection, including both native built features and 3rd-party integrations
  • Interpret which features are relevant for different scenarios
  • Apply data protection features to address specific needs in your organization.
