Think outside the office

Zoom is fast becoming the go-to platform for hosting remote meetings. Unfortunately, a few bad actors have found ways to highjack meetings, a practice known as “Zoom Bombing.”

The folks at PC Magazine have a list of settings and tips to keep your meetings open, yet secure.  Here are a few key takeaways for local government:

  • Use a Unique ID for Large or Public Zoom Calls
  • Create a Waiting Room
  • Make Sure Only the Hosts Can Share Their Screen
  • Disable Someone’s Camera
  • Prevent Animated GIFs and Other Files in the Chat
  • Disable Private Chat

As always, the methods you use must comply with your state and local open meeting laws.

Stay safe and healthy!
