        A support management expert gives us his advice in terms of security

        Tobie has worked on some very large web3 projects, including Opensea and Ternoa.

        Here are four key measures to fortify your support system:

        1- Ticketing System Vigilance

        When using a Discord ticketing system, prioritize the implementation of Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for all admin and moderator accounts. Consider integrating tools like HashBot (developped by a former colleague of mine from the trust and safety team at Opensea), a bot designed to filter and ban users with suspicious names or impersonating admin figures. Its advanced features, such as recognizing admin profile pictures, provide an additional layer of security.

        2- Direct Messages Shutdown

        While direct messages may boost ego, they can pose security risks. Past vulnerabilities, such as image-based attacks, highlight the need to close DM channels. By restricting direct communications, you reduce the risk of falling victim to exploitation via compromised authentication tokens. And it’s clear that you will β€œnot DM first”, you will even not DM at all.

        3- Balanced AI Integration

        Leverage AI cautiously in your support processes. While AI serves as a valuable FAQ resource, avoid excessive reliance to mitigate potential data leaks. Human supervision remains essential, ensuring personalized and efficient assistance that transcends the capabilities of automated systems. Striking the right balance between AI and human expertise is crucial for a secure and customer-centric support environment.4- Ensure swift and quick response to your customers

        If you don't respond quickly to your customers' requests, you can be sure that a scammer will be happy to deal with them, putting them at risk.

        By adopting these measures, you can bolster the security of your CRM and foster a trustful and resilient customer support system.

        Useful tools you can integrate:

        -Mava, a web3 friendly AI powered CRM you can integrate on Discord, Telegram and your website,

        -Hashbot, the ultimate security guard of your discord server,

        Conclusion:

        Choosing the right customer support solution for a Web3 project involves finding a balance between current needs and future scalability. As the industry anticipates increased demand, implementing a thoughtful support system is a strategic move. Assessing the advantages and disadvantages of each solution can guide project managers in making informed decisions tailored to their specific requirements. πŸŒπŸ› οΈ
