In times of crisis, ensuring business continuity is a major concern. Due to current, unfortunate circumstances, many organizations have largely focused on remote communication and collaboration, as demonstrated by the explosive rise in downloads of apps like Zoom, Google Hangouts Meet, and Microsoft Teams.
