Updates coming out of Zoomtopia

2:55-10:20: Eric kicked things off by highlighting some of the exciting security and privacy sessions at this year’s Zoomtopia:

He concluded by sharing a quick video the team pulled together on our commitment to security: 

Cybersecurity Awareness Month

10:21-14:14: Richard spoke about Cybersecurity Awareness Month and how Zoom is commemorating the event. He discussed this month’s importance and history, speaking to the industry’s collaborative effort to educate the public about security. He also shared Zoom’s efforts to help drive awareness and educate both Zoom users and our own employees during Cybersecurity Awareness Month and beyond.

Account security

14:15-18:42: Aamir discussed how administrators can leverage existing Zoom features to enhance account security. Using the analogy of the “Three Little Pigs” to illustrate the different levels of security associated with the strength and number of factors used to help secure accounts, he highlighted the necessity of multi-factor authentication. Aamir shared additional tips for securing a Zoom account, including using single sign-on and logging in with third-party identity providers.

Cybersecurity quiz

18:43-26:07: Karthik led a fun, interactive activity with the webinar audience — a true-or-false quiz that tests cybersecurity knowledge! Using the polling feature to gather the audience’s responses, Karthik paired correct answers with some additional cybersecurity tips around securing data, devices, meetings, and more. 


26:30-43:54: For the Q&A session, the panel fielded relevant questions from the audience. From password best practices to security training for employees, the questions prompted a lively discussion from the entire panel.
