Are you ready to secure the Zoom Bombing? Zoom bombing is an amazing feature that Zoom has become the go-to service for taking online classes and meetings or conferences. It’s when someone who can’t invite to a meeting, joins in and is not convenient or innovative. There also mishaps where people have been displaying offensive, ethnically charged imagery among other things. Zoom is quite difficult to work making it extremely difficult to impose on but until everything is prevented. Here are some things meeting organizers can do to secure the Zoom bombing.
While trying to keep meetings secure, Zoom also includes a password automatically to all new meetings that are created or scheduled. However, only members with the password can the meeting. The password is quite easy or simply numeric code. So it’s the best idea to modify it to something unique and to use another password for each meeting.
Remember your passwords are not created on any type of pattern. For example, don’t initiate going through the list of your most beloved characters from a TV show.
It probably is easy to share passwords with the invitation to a meeting. But members you share the invite and password to probably don’t know the share it such as in screenshots. It’s convenient to withhold a password unless it’s time for the meeting to begin. This is quite far less convenient but it might help to ignore interruption later on.
Once again it means more work for a meeting organizer. But it also in the long run. Remember you screen the members that join the meeting before you enable them in. By default, Zoom has turned on Waiting rooms for all meetings but it might be difficult to check every single member. You can have members to add something to their names whenever they join. For example, their university registration code. It enables you to screen them very easily. Advise members to use their real names but not aliases or random nicknames.
It also helps to have members RSVP if they will be joining a meeting so that you know what the number of members will be. There is a choice to ‘Lock Meetings’ that will secure more people from joining when the meeting is locked. This is quite essential but counterproductive if your members are trying to come online on time such as university students who work. Make sure just to use the best judgment with this amazing feature.
Keep it a secret. Keep it safe.
Encourage all members to keep everything about a meeting secret. Don’t share meeting links on Facebook groups or chat groups. Also, it includes a layer of trouble as posting a link in one place makes it simpler to communicate en-masse. In that situation, you can also create a WhatsApp group where only admin posts and add members who will be attending meetings daily. Simply share links in the group and ensures everyone from sharing it outside the group.
Make sure the central source of information for a meeting link so that other members can’t end up asking others for it, who probably share them over an un-secure channel.
Go on the offensive
Rather than everything, your meetings are being bombed you might have a mole on your hands and you want to search out who it is. However, it depends on the number of memebers you expect. Make a smaller group and invite them to different meetings. Verify which of those meetings are bombed and you also be able to check it out who is leaking the confidential information.
