When technology is the core of your business, managing risk is a 24/7 concern.
There are the big, infrastructural risks, like a complete outage of a cloud region. There are the bugs that might slip through and impact the customer experience. There’s the risk your data might be leaked, stolen or otherwise compromised. And for platform companies like Zendesk, there’s also the risk of fraud and abuse. Spammers using the platform to send mass unwanted emails. Brand impersonators, intent on spear phishing. Scammers using Talk, Zendesk’s call center software, to commit voice fraud.
To safeguard its reputation as a safe, smart and friendly customer support platform, Zendesk has to be prepared for the unexpected, and Slack plays a big role in that.
