Securing Zoom Meetings At SJSU

It is important to consider the security implications of the Zoom meetings you set up. It’s especially important to properly secure your meeting if there is any discussion of sensitive data. Please see our Data Classification Cheat Sheet [pdf] for more information. 

How do I prevent Zoom bombing?

SJSU already has some extra protocols in place to help keep you secure. Here are a few quick tips and some detailed information to further help you prevent Zoom bombing.

  1. Keep Meeting URLs Private - Don’t share them anywhere that’s accessible to the public. Just keep it to the group of people you’re sure you want to be there.
  2. Keep Meeting Passwords On - These are on by default, so all you have to do is put in a password if prompted and leave them on.
  3. Lock your meetings - When a meeting is locked, no one can join. Learn how on the Securing Zoom Meetings at SJSU page.
  4. Double-check your Zoom Google Calendar invites - If you add a Zoom meeting to your calendar or create a Zoom meeting in your calendar using the Zoom Plug-in, the calendar entry may include the Zoom meeting password. Depending on your settings, this may expose the password to anyone who views your calendar. Try making the calendar entry private or editing the entry to remove the Zoom meeting password.
