Due to COVID-19 and many people now working from home, the Marquette community should be aware of rising cybersecurity threats, particularly when using videoconferencing applications (i.e. Microsoft Teams, Zoom).
Please note that IT Services and the Center for Cyber Security Awareness and Cyber Defense encourage all students, faculty and staff to use Microsoft Teams, which is supported by the university and the preferred videoconferencing tool.
“Video conference bombing” is when a person joins an online conferencing session, takes control and causes disruption. Please note that this threat can occur within Teams, Skype, Zoom and other videoconferencing applications.
