The increased demand of video conferencing in these uncertain times has led companies to start using Zoom and many other free services when working from home. Security of these services is now very much under the spotlight.
I’m sure we’ve all seen the images of our Prime Minister using Zoom to carry on working during his isolation!
Very recently in the news we’ve started to see concerns over the security of these video conferencing services. See more on BBC news articles: Zoom under increased scrutiny and UK government defends PM’s use of Zoom.
For companies who have always stipulated total security for their communications, this opens up the question as to whether they should be using services such as Zoom or alternatively what should they be using?
4 things to look for in a secure video conferencing provider:
If you have any concerns over the security of your video conferencing service or if data security is of utmost importance to your organisation, then these are the things that you should be checking or asking your provider about.
- Be absolutely sure that you can trust them with your data
- Do they have security measures and certifications, such as ISO27001
- Are there any guarantees that your data remains under your control and in your own territory
- Ensure that your data will be processed according to the data protection regulations in your jurisdiction (for example, the GDPR regulations)
