Most recently however Zoom has found itself at the forefront of the news for security breaches and what they now are calling “Zoom bombers”. With the increase of Zoom users by over 100% since the pandemics beginning, many new users are inexperienced in the use of Zoom and not properly utilizing current security features. While financial institutions review the security of Zoom meetings, rest assured Peak Consulting has always implemented Zoom’s security features such as unique meeting codes and password requirements to keep client’s information safe.
In addition to setting meeting passwords that are only shared with users via email within the calendar invite, we also utilize the waiting room feature. With this feature users are only allowed to enter the meeting once approved by the meeting host so our consultants can verify each person that is viewing the meeting. These precautions have assisted our work from home efforts so we can maintain the social distancing guidelines set forth by local and national governments.
