Protect Your Zoom Meetings

Many of our clients, friends, and family are adjusting to the new norm of working remotely.  Remote Meeting Connectivity, in its many forms, has proven to be essential during the quarantine, but it has also given rise to a variety of cybersecurity threats.

While the platforms are not dangerous by themselves, hackers are trying to capitalize on everyone’s new dependency on remote meeting tools.

There are numerous platforms that are being utilized to stay connected, so we strongly advise you to do your research prior to signing up with any of them.  As always, none of these platforms are invincible, but a few have emerged as fan favorites throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Zoom, specifically, is one of the most popular meeting platforms, so we thought it would be helpful to outline a few key ways for you to stay secure while using their meeting space.  Zoom has become an integral asset to many businesses all over the world, so we want to educate you on how to use it most securely.
