2. Risk of data theft on Zoom
Zoom has become the go-to for organizations across the globe to host meetings in this new normal. Although it’s easy user interface appeals to many, at the same time, it is not a reliable platform to conduct confidential business meetings where you and your partners share crucial data through screen sharing or zoom chat. In fact, there are data breaches associated with this too.
If you ever get a chance to read Zoom’s private policy it doesn’t guarantee you the full protection of your information. Making it easy for hackers or anyone to access your data or enter a meeting without being visible. So what should you do?
Whenever you have to host a business meeting it’s highly recommended not to make your meeting ID public. Create a very strong password for that meeting to keep your meeting room private. Make sure you do not click on any link you get on zoom chat since that may be a scam from hackers.
3. Be aware of online hoaxes
With so much uncertainty and curiosity, it’s no surprise people are reading things about it online. Visiting different websites to know more about this disease. This is certainly a golden opportunity for scammers to capitalize on this tension and hack people’s devices. With more than 100,000 COVID-19 web domains, malicious attacks and Android application breaches have been on the rise. The hackers are running online scam campaigns targeting “COVID-19” to get your attention through emails,video links or excel sheets since the home-based connections do not efficiently protect the scam mails or links.
