  • Very brief - what is the cloud (make sure everyone is on the same page) -your data is in a datacentre somewhere - probably replicated many times -you access it through a browser
  • Customer service email
  • Shared calendars to manage events
  • Demo!
  • Demo!
  • briefly describe purpose of each main app
  • Google says it takes security and privacy very seriously. They have much more resources to put towards security then any organization on its own.
  • FAQ on security &amp; privacy: http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=60762 privacy policy: http://www.google.com/privacy/privacy-policy.html -Google Apps for Business has more robust security controls than free version, though they may become available for free version in the future -wikileaks - data is in US servers, government could ask for it and you would never know -ultimately, you don&apos;t have control over your own data According to the Treasury Board of Canada, the US Patriot Act permits U.S. law enforcement officials, for the purpose of an anti-terrorism investigation, to seek a corder order allowing access to the personal records of anyone without that person’s knowledge.   Proprietary - Google Apps is open architecture but not open source -Google collects your information - you are the product - be aware of this
  • -if you don&apos;t use google apps - a way to assess if it is right for you -if you already use it - a chance to evaluate how google apps is working for you
  • Google apps 101
