Zoom is in everyone's living room - how safe is it?

14th April 2020

 

 

 

 

AN INTERESTING READ - Helen O'Grady Academy has taken all reasonable safeguarding precautions to ensure students and teachers are safe online. While nobody can guarantee 100% against any wrongdoing - and we will always recommend caution when online -  the risks are no more than when using other online app such as Netflix or Facebook.

 

EXERPT:

Zoom, the video-conferencing app that has seen a huge rise in downloads since quarantines were imposed around the world, is now being used by millions for work and social gatherings.

 

This week UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted a picture of himself chairing a Cabinet meeting via the app.

This led to questions about how secure it was for government meetings.

A Cabinet Office spokesperson moved to clarify the government's position: "In the current unprecedented circumstances the need for effective channels of communication is vital. National Cyber Security Centre guidance shows there is no security reason for Zoom not to be used for conversations below a certain classification."
