By now, you’ve likely heard horror stories about the rampant “Zoombombing” that happened at the start of the pandemic, where intruders crashed Zoom meetings and broadcast inappropriate content to attendees.
When preparing for online meetings, most of us think about agendas and lighting, but we really need to think about privacy too. Meetings, by their very nature, contain vital and private information that you don’t want just anyone to see. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to ensure your team and data are protected.
Here are 15 ways you can ensure you don’t become the next victim of a Zoombombing—as well as keep your data safe from prying eyes.
18 Tools to Collaborate From Anywhere
You don’t need unique software for remote work. Most of the tools you use to work at home or a coworking spot are the same ones you’d use in an office.
What’s suddenly more important when everyone’s not in the same room, though, is communication. You can’t tap someone on the shoulder, leave a note on their desk, sit together to preview design and copy changes in Photoshop or Word, or brainstorm on a whiteboard in the conference room after lunch. You may be working—but they may be sleeping on the other side of the world.
But then, even in the office you shouldn’t bug people at random, hovering over their shoulder until they’re ready to chat. The conference room might be full, the whiteboard might not have markers.
So whether your entire team is remote, or you’re remote for a few days and need to stay connected, or you’re working with a contractor or team somewhere else, or you just want to work more effectively even in an office, here is the software for remote work you need in 2020.
