Due to the lockdown, more and more people are using online software to enable them to connect through video conferencing, whether this is through work, connecting with family members or even educational purposes, but how safe are these methods?
One of the popular software apps that a lot of people are using at the moment, including the Neighbourhood Network, is Zoom. The NN team have put the Cyber Crime team at Humberside Police to the test to check out how safe this software is.
Due to the nature of technology and the speed on how different software apps get developed, nothing can be 100% secure. However, read below the potential risks and how the Neighbourhood Network and Humberside Police are following the guidance to safeguard everybody who takes part in the Neighbourhood Network ‘Keep Connected’ series using the zoom app.
The team would encourage anyone else who is hosting or utilising zoom meetings to follow the same guidance.
