The Office of Information Technology has created a variety of resources with useful strategies for keeping meetings secure and guidance for taking action in challenging circumstances. Also, new security features have been added to Zoom.

New Zoom security features
Several new features have been added to Zoom to help ensure security and prevent unwanted guests in Zoom meetings, including:
- requiring passcodes or waiting rooms (beginning September 27)
- the option of allowing only those with Rutgers Zoom accounts into your meetings
- the option of enabling computer audio only, which will prevent participants from using the Zoom telephone number to call in
We will be sharing additional information on these Zoom security features with the Rutgers community later today. Stay tuned.
