In this paper a study into online collaboration methods has been carried out. Starting with the types of online collaboration, research was carried out into the existing methods of collaboration for the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) working group on the Human Aspects of Information Security. Further research was conducted into the field of online collaboration focussing on wikis, social networks and bespoke tools. Based on this it was decided that a bespoke online collaboration platform would be designed and built taking into account the requirements of this working group. Feedback on the bespoke platform was provided continually by the working group and helped to create a solution that exceeded their requirements and expectations. It was also highlighted that the solution would be adopted by the working group as their primary means of online collaboration.
