Zoom isn’t Malware.

  1. Ensure that if you are using a personal meeting ID (PMI), that it is secured with a PIN or Passcode.
  2. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360033559832-Meeting-and-Webinar-Passwords-
  3. Use scheduled meetings. These create unique IDs that are more difficult to guess. In addition ensure that the meeting ID has a passcode on them.
  4. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360033331271-Account-Setting-Update-Password-Default-for-Meeting-and-Webinar
  5. If you are hosting multiple people and you are the main presenter, use the webinar function to create a Zoom meeting, not a meeting itself. This will restrict who can share the screen and prevent “Zoom Bombing”.
  6. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/200917029-Getting-Started-With-Webinar
  7. Use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on your Zoom account so that if a password is compromised, the attacker does not have access to your Zoom account.

  9. Lock down your classrooms for students.

  11. Enable a waiting room feature to screen individuals that are coming into your meeting room. This will prevent unknown individuals from joining your session.
