Over the past few weeks, there has been lots of people (blogs, news articles, tweets, updates, etc.) letting us know about security problems/concerns with Zoom (specifically Zoom Meetings application). Zoom has made several changes over the past few weeks, updating their security, and ensuring their users the application is more secure than has been reported.
Along those lines, we decided to put together a quick guide to "Securing Your Zoom Meetings". It's essential when you we move from physical meetings to virtual meetings with teammates, work teams, business partners and customers, that we ensure those meetings are attended by the "right" people. Zoom Bombing has become a new thing with the explosion of video conferencing meetings. The key thing to remember is you have control over who attends your meeting, it's your responsibility to understand those features and how to use them.
If you have suggestions on how to improve this guide, please let us know.

There are lots of studies on how to make your company (and office environment) more productive. A quick scan reveals many of them talk about open office layouts, lots of natural light, work team size, flexible work schedules, etc. These research studies point to more companies having less traditional office spaces and conference rooms, and more team oriented meeting [...]
