Secure Use of Collaboration Tools
|User Considerations||Technical Considerations||Secure Use of Collaboration Tools|
The Government of Canada’s (GC) Policy on the Acceptable Network and Device Use (PANDU) recognizes that open access to modern tools is essential to transforming the way public servants work and serve Canadians. This policy requires that public servants have open access to the Internet, including GC and external tools and services that will enhance communication and digital collaboration, and encourage the sharing of knowledge and expertise to support innovation.
Collaboration tools allow public servants to build and maintain interactive dialogue with the communities they serve. Examples include sites such as Twitter and LinkedIn; online presentation sharing tools such as Prezi or SlideShare; and real-time discussion tools such as Slack, to name a few.
