Authentication and Other Best Practices for Secure Zoom Meetings

At Ohio State, our default CarmenZoom settings were designed to help protect our students, faculty and staff. Even with protections in place, unwanted attendees are an ongoing issue: spring term has already seen an increase in Zoom bombing incidents. The Office of Distance Education and eLearning provides a set of recommended guidelines to further protect your meetings and help you respond to disruptions that may occur. Requiring authentication and not sharing links publicly are two easy measures you can take, but ODEE outlines even more security tactics you can use before, during and after your Zoom meetings.
