Protect Your Virtual Event Against ‘Zoombombings’
Zoe Bell | Podcasting
With a momentous amount of employees now working from home due to rising health concerns, businesses are embracing digital workplace technologies at a faster rate than ever before. Important in-person meetings and even workplace happy hours aren’t being canceled but instead taking place over virtual hangouts.
What many do not realize, however, is many of these digital platforms lack the security needed to safely share confidential information and host important company events.
According to this New York Times article, trolls have been continuously jumping into public Zoom calls and using screen-sharing to project graphic content to unwitting conference attendees. Large enterprises, such as Chipotle, are being forced to end their Zoom chats due to lack of security and these inappropriate “zoombombings” from unwanted guests.
Planning to host an event through Zoom? If security is important to you, consider taking the post-event recorded content and distributing it through a trusted and secure remote-accessible solution like uStudio. With a user-management solution, event organizers can control access of who is able to consume their messages - even if they are looking to reach individuals outside of their organization, like customers or partners. It also enables the tracking of named user viewing analytics which can be very helpful in assessing the overall success of the event.
Although Zoom does offer password protection functionalities to keep unwanted users from joining, uStudio goes beyond the password to protect the embedded media players, as well as the audio stream itself, to ensure its podcasts are only playable when initialized inside of the location for which they were intended.
Interested in streaming a live event via podcast? Live audio podcasts are also a much better way to get remote workers ‘dialed in’ to important company meetings and announcements than other communication mediums. Now, your mobile workforce can listen to conference calls, company meetings, and live updates by simply tapping the uStudio app on their mobile phone or tablet. If there is a relevant live event in progress, they can listen to it conveniently from anywhere. Listeners can pause, stop and restart the recording for additional listening - and in the case of a dropped wifi connection, the app will auto-pause and reconnect when you have network coverage.
Even if your virtual event doesn’t include content that is necessarily confidential, we can all agree that it’s important for the meetup to run smoothly without the arrival of internet trolls or explicit content. uStudio’s private podcast solution will protect from these instances and more.
