Creating a Collaborative Environment within a Secure Framework

How are you dealing with the tension of enabling greater levels of digital collaboration, whilst balancing the need for a secure and compliant IT environment?

The current situation has required IT to deliver on a robust set of collaboration tools that allow teams to duck, dive and weave through the ongoing set of challenges – whether they were ready for it or not. And the need to foster collaboration will only increase whether workers are based at home, at work, or anywhere.

The role of IT in enabling a collaborative workplace was also an imperative before recent events. In a recent independent survey* of 100 IT leaders in Australia (91%) felt overall success of their organisation depended on reinventing the way teams collaborate while 74% indicated significant or large improvements in the organisation were required to achieve it.

This webinar presents the above research findings in detail from Albany Vincent, Senior Research Manager at Vanson Bourne. It also provides a deep-dive from Dropbox Business and Innovatus Media into these challenges while presenting some creative solutions that help IT decision balance between innovation and risk.


  • The challenges IT and Security professionals face when looking to create a collaborative workspace.

  • A look at key ANZ insights from Vanson Bourne’s State of Collaboration survey.

  • Barriers to improving collaborative working in your organisation - Culture, Teams, and Tools.

  • Dropbox's approach to collaboration: providing control and visibility to IT and enable easy adoption for end-users.

Angela Mager
Head of Solutions, Dropbox APJ

Angela is the Head of Solutions Asia Pacific Japan at Dropbox and currently leads a fantastic team of Dropbox solution architects that are creating an enlightened way of working for customers across the region.

Angela’s career has been a combination of grabbing opportunities and a lot of determination to succeed. Her first role in tech had her learning how to solve customer problems from the ground up by coding software and later she jumped into a consulting role helping her customers use data to drive change.

That move led Angela to The Cloud where she’s been changing the game for her customers and building amazing teams in North America and Asia Pacific Japan for the past 17 years. Angela takes her work-life inspiration from seeing her team drive innovation and change the world one solution at a time.

When Angela grows up she’d like to be a founding member at a software start-up or maybe a lottery winner. Until then, she spends her free time travelling the world (and planning the next trip) with her extremely patient husband and two smart kids.
