Best quotes from the chatroom

“Can we encourage users to self-audit? I used to have lists of “you shared these files externally” sent to users (with an opt-out) and they were quite good at self policing.” – Ian Poynter, consultant

“From my experience, GDPR made auto-classification much easier. Made PII easy to identify and you can always blame GDPR on ‘why it got classified’.” – Eli Migdal, CEO, Boardish

“The personal account thing is a real issue, especially with organizations that don’t have a policy for giving contractors their own email accounts. It makes it hard to know who’s supposed to have access to a document.” – Kira Wojack, marketing and PR consultant

“When you show users a list of files they’ve been sharing externally, they always question their own decisions.” – Ian Poynter, consultant
