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. Also, we have additional information such as Zoom Do’s and Don’ts, our Zoom FAQ, and our Zoom Authentication FAQ.

How do I prevent Zoom bombing?

SJSU already has some extra security controls in place to help keep you secure. But here are a few additional settings you can make use of to further help you prevent Zoom Bombing.

  1. Turn on Authentication - When creating a Zoom meeting, enable authentication for jonining. In the event you are inviting attendiese from outside the SJSU domain, you can add exceptions for specific guests [pdf].
  2. 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.
  3. Keep Meeting Passwords On - These are on by default, so all you have to do is put in a password when prompted and leave them on.
  4. Lock your meetings - When a meeting is locked, no one can join. To enable, click on Security Icon, and select “Lock Meeting”.
  5. Use a waiting room - A waiting room puts each of your meeting attendees into an individual space where you can verify they are who they say they are. You then have the option to release all people from the waiting rooms, or individually allow them in.
