Zoom Meeting Security

Now that we've moved our meetings to being online, there are some safety concerns that we need to keep in mind that we never had to think too hard about before. We are seeing news articles about "Zoom-bombing", where uninvited guests join public Zoom calls to disrupt, or even terrorize its participants. There are a number of techniques that you can use to secure your Zoom sessions.

  1. Check out our webpage dedicated to Zoom privacy and security. https://www.ias.edu/computing/services/zoom-privacy-and-security
  2. Zoom has a great blog entry on this. https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2020/03/20/keep-the-party-crashers-from-crashing-your-zoom-event/
  3. And here is some more information from Zoom on the topic: https://explore.zoom.us/en/securing-your-meeting
  4. Here is a great YouTube video on how to use these features. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1IMmOujc9c

I recommend taking a look at these before an incident happens.
