COVID-19: Protect Yourself from Scammers & CriminalsMarch 29, 2020
- Limit reuse of access codes; if you’ve used the same code for a while, you’ve probably shared it with more people than you can imagine or recall.
- If the topic is sensitive, use one-time PINs or meeting identifier codes, and consider multi-factor authentication (MFA).
- Use a “green room” or “waiting room” and don’t allow the meeting to begin until the host joins.
- Enable notification when attendees join by playing a tone or announcing names. If this is not an option, make sure the meeting host asks new attendees to identify themselves.
- If available, use a dashboard to monitor attendees—and identify all generic attendees.
- Don’t record the meeting unless it’s necessary.
- If it’s a web meeting (with video):
- Disable features you don’t need (like chat or file sharing).
- Before anyone shares their screen, remind them not to share other sensitive information during the meeting inadvertently.
