Video conferencing (VC) is becoming an effective way of communication for remote working and for users at different locations to conduct real-time communications.
|With the rising popularity of VC, there are more cyber attacks targeting VC solutions and users. It is therefore crucial to assess the risks before conducting VC meetings and ensure they are held in a secure manner. Below are some potential risks:|
|Meeting bombing – an uninvited guest may join a VC meeting by discovering or guessing the meeting ID to disrupt the meeting or share inappropriate content.|
|Malicious links or phishing attacks – if attackers gain access to the meeting room, they may trick participants to click malicious links. There may also be phishing emails or websites mimicking VC invitations with a malicious intent to steal user credentials or send malware.|
|Sharing data with third parties – be aware of data sharing with third parties by the VC solution or platform and their data usage policy.|
|Malware or zero-day attacks – there may be vulnerabilities in the VC solution that could be exploited by attackers.|
