A Hard Lesson To Learn

This new normal is beginning to be simply.. normal. If you're like most people, you probably never expected such a widespread transition to telecommuting, but "unexpected" has been the name of the game for 2020. Just about everything is done remotely these days, and one of the primary challenges lies in the education sector: how do we effectively and securely teach our kids remotely during these trying times?

Since the start of the remote school year, there have been a number of incidents of Zoom hijacking, where lewd, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate images are broadcast during school Zoom meetings, thereby hijacking the meeting and causing considerable issues for parents and educators alike.

It's important to keep in mind that, while these incidents are serious, they are the result of an undisciplined approach to cybersecurity that is pervasive in nearly every software solution and industry. As this year's circumstances have resulted in an unprecedented shift toward telecommuting, so too should the newfound reliance on cloud solutions and technology lead to a security minded approach in all things cyber-related.
