The New York Times writes how un-authorized users are accessing corporate video conferencing systems by finding systems that enable them to accept calls automatically.
There’s one thing you can do, right now, to ensure that you don’t have visitors in your office, through your video conference system.
Go to your video conference system settings and ensure you set it up to NOT automatically accept incoming video conference calls. Whether you have a low cost system or an expensive system from Polycom, Tandberg or LifeSize.
Simple but effective.
While you’re at it, you should work with your IT adviser on all your technology – software and hardware. If it’s on the “default” settings change these settings to be more secure.
