Some tips to help all users secure their meetings.

Each industry can use Zoom's platform in a way that suits its own needs. Zoom Meetings always come with a security icon and a set of controls. This helps users to protect their meeting from uninvited guests.

These controls allow meeting hosts to:

  • Share and manage the screen.

  • Lock meetings.

  • Set up two-step verification.

  • Remove disruptive participants.

  • Turn off video, mute participants.

  • Suspend participants' activities.

  • Disable file transfer.

  • Disable Private Chat.

  • Report a user.

These controls help organizations to manage, optimize, and secure the meeting experience.

Zoom security features for schools, education and training.

4Webcom is active in various branches, including education.

As schools and universities embrace the hybrid learning model, educators need the right security tools to ensure their virtual classroom is not interrupted by outsiders or unexpected hijackers.

The following features and commitments are designed by Zoom to help educators and administrators streamline the virtual learning experience:

  • At-Risk Meeting Notifier: Designed to proactively identify meeting privacy issues, this tool scans posts on Social Media and other public online resources.

  • Chat Etiquette Tool: This tool helps prevent users from sharing unwanted messages, such as messages that contain inappropriate language.

  • Waiting Room: In the meeting settings under “Security” you can enable the waiting room. Waiting rooms can be customized with a description or even a video.

  • Single sign-on (SSO): Zoom helps users in schools and business environments with authentication. The single sign-on (SSO) feature is a secure and fast way to log in as a Zoom client.

Zoom healthcare security features.

The well-being and privacy of patients are of course always a top priority for healthcare organizations. That's why Zoom has several features to protect patient privacy:

  • Advanced Chat Encryption: This feature enables communication under secure conditions by encrypting chat messages between users.

  • Meeting access codes: Anyone can create an access code and share it with patients and colleagues via email. For example, anyone who wants to participate in a meeting must first enter the security code.

  • Account Theft Protection: Helpful in identifying users whose login credentials may have been stolen. When Zoom determines that a user's login credentials may have been stolen, they will be notified and asked to change their password within a day. If this doesn’t happen, the user is forced to log out. This feature adds extra security to prevent cybercriminals from using employee or patient credentials to access their Zoom accounts.

Zoom security features for financial services.

Safety is of great importance in this industry. Protecting customer information is extremely important. The customer's trust in the company depends on security. The following functions can help with ensuring this:

  • Management of data routing: Zoom users have the option to select what data is moved from one location to another over the Internet.

  • End-to-end encryption: We've written an extensive blog about end-to-end encryption, you can read it here!

  • Meeting and Webinar Archiving: This feature allows account administrators to set up a native platform to organize meetings and collect data.

  • Information Barriers: This feature is designed to help control users' communication policies. Information barriers can be used to prevent certain users from using information to communicate with others who are not authorized to do so.

Whatever industry you work in, secure collaboration is essential for success.
