Zoom and cyber security

Zoom allows you to engage in live web conversations with your teacher and fellow students using audio, video, and text-based chat features. 

Security recommendations

  • Only use the Zoom version offered by DeiC (through WAYF) : or on learnIT. We also ask that you, on a regular basis, ensure that the Zoom software used is the latest version offered via DeiC. Also consider participating via the Chrome browser in which case you avoid potential issues related to client updates.
  • You should only share non-sensitive information when communicating via Zoom. In practice, this means that you should not reveal confidential or sensitive information (for instance CPR-number and credit card information) regarding yourself or others. The same goes for confidential business information.
    Rule of thumb: Only share information that you would be comfortable sharing in a public forum. NB: if the meeting is hosted via the Zoom client, the enhanced encryption provides a stronger security level that makes it possible to share confidential information.
  • Avoid using your personal meeting ID to host meetings. Select ‘One-time meeting ID’ or ‘Generate automatically’ in your settings.
  • Set a password for participation in Zoom meetings – and use a different password for each meeting. Send the password directly to the participants via ITU platforms like e-mail or learnIT (do not share the password on semi public channels such as Facebook and Twitter).
  • When administratively possible, use the “Waiting room” function for acceptance of meeting participants and/or only allow authenticated ITU-users to join meetings. Waiting room are relevant for meetings with few participants.
