The NY attorney general’s office sent a letter to Zoom asking what security measures the company has put in place to handle its huge surge in usage.
It’s also become popular as a tool for socializing. That’s forced the company to address data privacy and security concerns that weren’t as in-focus before, when it was primarily used in the workplace.
“Zoom takes its users’ privacy, security, and trust extremely seriously. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working around-the-clock to ensure that hospitals, universities, schools, and other businesses across the world can stay connected and operational. We appreciate the New York Attorney General’s engagement on these issues and are happy to provide her with the requested information,” the company said in a statement.
