Zoom bombing

Zoom bombing is when a bad actor joins your meeting and disrupts the proceedings in some way. Preventative measures such as a waiting room, passcode, or requiring participants to log into their Zoom account to join the event can help to prevent Zoom bombers from interrupting your meeting. Create a contingency plan for what you will do in the event of a Zoom bomber, such as creating backup shared notes docs and Zoom meeting links.
