Zoom Security Update 4/3/2020
During this first week of April, there has been a significant amount of reporting in the media about Zoom’s security. These range from Zoom-bombing (uninvited participants disrupting meetings) to specific security issues. Jason Adams, who leads our IT department and Aaron Johnson, who leads our Ed Tech Department have discussed this at length. As of today, with the information we have, we believe Zoom is taking swift and appropriate action to address these issues. Zoom has suspended new feature development for 90 days to give complete attention to security updates. If you would like to review the response by Founder of Zoom, Eric Yuan, you can access the post here.
At the beginning of the COVID crisis, Shawn Trueman and our ET Staff set up every Moodle class site with a Zoom integration which generates a unique address for every meeting. This greatly reduces exposure for things like Zoom-bombing, because it keeps those addresses unique and within Moodle. We do not use Zoom to relay personal student information, and we are working with your instructors and the seminary staff to use employ additional best practices to keep your class meetings secure and your information safe.
