With everyone working from home for now, teleconferencing has taken center stage as a way to maintain human contact. While businesses have been using solutions like Zoom for a while, seemingly everyone is increasing their usage of services like it, whether for personal or business uses.
In this CTO Advisor podcast episode, Keith Townsend and Nathaniel Avery break down the security issues that have cropped up since Zoom stepped into the self-isolation spotlight. These include concerns about sharing data with Facebook, how the service handles encryption, and the very public problem of Zoombombing.
In the episode, they discuss the dangers in conflating these issues with each other, and which ones organizations should focus on as major security and privacy issues. They also discuss why organizations that have concerns about sharing sensitive information should avoid SaaS teleconferencing in general, and what the options are for truly secure communication.
It’s a really great conversation that puts these headline-grabbing stories into a thoughtful context.
