Securing Virtual Meetings (aka Challenging “Zoom Bombing”)

Whenever you are planning to run a virtual meeting it is important that you ensure you are doing so as securely as possible. Activities such as sharing open meeting links on social media and giving participants full access permissions when they are in your session make uninvited and disruptive behaviour more likely (a behaviour known as “Zoom Bombing”, regardless of the platform it occurs on).

Just as you can lock doors and windows in your home to help avoid unwanted intruders, you can configure your virtual meeting in such a way that increases their security and reduces their visibility to uninvited guests.
