How does it work?Centralization & simplification: Only Slido admins and account owners can upload the SAML XML file into the organization settings. Once this is set on the organization level, end-users won’t be able to work with SAML XML file anymore, as it will be automatically propagated from the organization settings. Improved privacy: Slido admins and account owners can enforce SAML SSO on all events in the organization (including all past and future events) without the exceptions of any individual event. 👉 Check out our Community article on all things SSO for more info 👈 🎥 A Reminder: Zoom is com

Compliance Challenges of Deploying Audience Interaction Platforms For meeting hosts in regulated industries such as financial services, balancing productivity and compliance is a challenge as they try to lead more effective meetings and events. In regulated industries, engaging audiences through polls and Q&As also involves ensuring that their digital communications comply with retention, supervision, and review requirements. Financial services organizations, in particular, must preserve e-communications for monitoring and supervision including MiFID II,SEC 17a-4 and public disclosure requests. Archiving of all content, such as live polls, Q&As, surveys, or crowd-sourced ideas, are included in this process. Each year, regulators levy hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for failing to monitor communications. There are few compliance solutions for archiving electronic communications from audience interaction platforms such as Slido. As a result, financial services companies
