We’ve received reports of at least one class being interrupted with “Zoom bombing.” Zoom bombing happens when an unauthorized/uninvited user joins a live Zoom session and shares content unrelated to the subject material. 

To secure your meetings and classes, please review the Increasing Your Zoom Security section at it.ucsb.edu/increasing-your-zoom-security

We also recently published information to help you use Zoom at it.ucsb.edu/zoom, including how to host and join Zoom meetings, and FAQs for Teaching Remotely with Zoom with information about how to make remote classes more secure. We continue to refresh and update this content as we receive more information from faculty and staff users. 

We will also host live training to address Zoom security and how to effectively use Zoom Meeting and Zoom Webinar. Please join us at one or all of the sessions below. For Zoom information for each session, contact UCSB IT.
