Zoom as a communication tool

In times of # Covid19, online tools have become essential for organizing events, meetings and congresses. There are multiple tools. Here we leave you information about zoom, via  TechSoup  .

How to make safe use of Zoom?

If a meeting may result in sensitive content being shared  , we  recommend enabling the following  security features:

  • When scheduling the meeting,  verify that you have requested a password  and that only expected participants receive this password.
  • Expand the Advanced Options section at the bottom of the meeting planner. Make sure you’ve set up the meeting to  require participants to authenticate and log into Zoom . If they do not have a Zoom account, they will be asked to create a free account.
  • It also enables a “waiting room”.  This will allow you to see the participants who have joined before allowing them to join the meeting.
  • Require the host to join first.  This will ensure that the host can manage the participants when they join the meeting. In this case, it might be good to add alternate hosts in case the host can’t participate at the last minute.
  • Once the meeting has started and you have the expected participants,  lock the meeting from the Manage Participants panel . This will prevent others from joining.
  • Once the meeting has started, you may not want to allow others to share your screen, chat, or mention yourself. Zoom has just released a new feature for hosts with the introduction of a Security button on the toolbar. When clicked,  hosts can restrict those activities and set other security options .
