Zoom agrees security, privacy improvements after New York AG investigates

Friday 8 May 2020 | 08:58 CET | News
New York Attorney General Letitia James announced an agreement with Zoom Video Communications for the videoconferencing provider to adopt new security measures. James wrote to the company in March to express concerns about a lack of protection for the growing number of Zoom users and said she would investigate the company's security and privacy practices. Many of the agreed new measures are part of Zoom's earlier announced 90-day security plan, some of which has already been implemented.
