To ensure you have the latest set of security features, please update your Zoom application. For assistance, please contact us.
Before scheduling your meeting, ask yourself a few helpful questions:
How sensitive will the meeting's content be?
Who is your intended audience?
If your event is public, ask yourself questions like:
- Does everyone need to be able to join the meeting?
- Consider only inviting your hosts and panelists to the meeting. You can then stream the meeting to the public.
- Looking for more interaction than a live stream? Consider making the event a Zoom Webinar.
- Webinar support, including ad-hoc license rental, is available from Learning & Event Technology Services. For more information, see their list of services.
Who should be invited?
The more your invite is shared, the greater the chances of your meeting being disrupted. Consider requiring registration for public meetings or posting the link on an event page instead of social media directly.
Passcodes protect your meetings from random discovery or mistakenly typed meeting IDs. They are required for all scheduled or instant meetings.
Waiting rooms allow you to control who enters the meeting individually, collectively, or automatically depending on their email address.
Meeting authentication requires participants to sign in to Zoom before joining a meeting either from any email address or from ones belonging to specified domains.
Registration requires participants to provide information before receiving a Zoom meeting link. Registration links will not contain your meeting ID, making them ideal for public events.
Hosts and co-hosts can use the Security button to quickly manage meeting features ranging from waiting rooms to the ability for participants to unmute themselves.
While rare, disruptions (or "Zoom Bombings") can happen. Learn more about how to address a disruption, regain control of your meeting, and file a report.
Some meetings benefit from extra consideration to make them a success. IS&T has provided some recommendations and steps you can take to safely execute the meetings that matter most.
