Product launches are often shrouded in secrecy, with a focus on making a big splash when the product is launched. Teams often devote months (if not years) to developing a new product. As you and your team get closer to the release, you get more and more nervous about confidential product details going public. In those final weeks, putting your product into the hands of a group of complete strangers for a beta test can feel like a huge risk. What if someone finds out about the bugs we uncover? What if a beta tester tells the press about the product? Or worse, gives product information to one of my competitors?
What most teams don’t realize is that beta test leaks are actually quite rare and easily prevented. By putting a couple best practices in place, you can greatly diminish the likelihood of a leak while preparing yourself to handle a leak if it occurs. Our new eBook will help you identify the risks and take the right steps to ensure that your confidential information stays that way.
