Social Network For Security Executives: Help Make Right Cyber Security Decisions
(question posted on behalf of a CISO member)
We have blocked Zoom meeting from corporate devices & network.. how many of you are following this practice?
Information: Yesterday, The Intercept reported that Zoom video calls are not end-to-end encrypted, although the company’s claims that they are. Additionally, two security researchers found a Zoom bug that could be used to steal Windows passwords, while another researcher found two new bugs that could be abused to take over a Zoom user’s Mac, which includes tapping into the webcam and microphone.

Reply 1: You can use MS Team's or Blue Jeans
We use BlueJeans and Cisco Webex.
Though we have Ms Teams, we have not started using it actively. Can any one share a roadmap they used to deploy Teams, hopefully with full features?
We have not blocked Zoom meeting considering the fact that some of our client's meetings scheduled on Zoom.
We 'IT' unit have received a number of queries from users regarding Zoom. We have acknowledged that is a 'good' VC tool. However, it is not one of our standard applications and have an alternative product, scalable, cloud-based that works with different end-points including room systems seamlessly.
We are also evaluating Ms Teams.
We are actively Migrating to MS-Teams and it was well before the vulnerabilities identified.
However still it is going to take couple of weeks considering the extensive usage and user friendliness.
Do you have a roadmap for migration to MS Teams, hopefully to leverage all functions?
We are not using Zoom as official tool for collaboration....except some instances for troubleshooting sessions with OEM.
