Zoom as a Case Study – Privacy and Security in the Digital World During Social Distancing
Please join Frankfurt Kurnit’s Privacy & Data Security Group for a live virtual roundtable webinar on Webex to explore the rapidly evolving privacy and data security questions surrounding the meteoric rise of Zoom, the most popular video conferencing application in the COVID-19 era of social distancing. The Group will explore a number of difficult questions, including:
- -What sins has Zoom actually committed? Are they really so shocking from a privacy and data security perspective? In violation of law? Just not best practice? Creepy?
- -What can other organizations learn from the Zoom case study? Has Zoom’s iterative response to the questions raised by privacy advocates, security researchers, regulators, plaintiffs’ attorneys, and Congress mitigated the damage or added to the legal and reputational risk?
- -What weight should be given to privacy and security concerns in a time of such seismic societal change and crisis?
- -Should our attention be focused on the more significant concerns (like poor naming conventions that might make Zoom video content more easily accessible) as compared to practices that are extremely common and don’t implicate sensitive information (like Zoom’s original use of the Facebook SDK)?
