Zoom

Security

Date: April 16, 2020

While we’re practicing social distancing, many people are using Zoom to get together virtually. Due to concerns over Zoom and the sensitive nature of data we are transmitting, we are, effective immediately, making the following change:

By default, password protection will be turned on for all Zoom calls and meetings. Meetings already scheduled will need to be adjusted or rescheduled.

Additionally, here are a few best practices using Zoom:

• Enable the waiting room feature and control the admittance of guests.  Select advanced options when scheduling a meeting (see photo below).
• Do not share a link to a teleconference or classroom on an unrestricted publicly available channel, such as a social media post. Provide the link directly to specific people.
• When joining a meeting via phone, enter your participant ID rather than inputting your number or your meeting name will appear as a phone number.
• Please account for all phone numbers that show up in the meeting list.

Avamere IT will continue to monitor Zoom performance to make sure it meets business needs. An additional friendly reminder to be careful of what you click on during this time. If you receive an email from an unknown or unexpected source, remember:

• Do not open any attachments.
• Do not click on any links.
• Do not input login information.
• Do not respond to the email with personal or company data, like a password.

The Avamere IT team is working diligently to protect you from these types of emails, however, on occasion, some slip through. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about a suspicious email, please do not hesitate to forward the email to servicedesk@avamere.com. Our IT Department will investigate it further. Please forward the email as an attachment.
