It is worth noting that last week the UK Govt. has issued a note to its
departments not to use Zoom because of these security issues - as often
Government business is confidential. Companies are also advised that
confidential business should not take place on Zoom. The problem is of
all the remote participation software out there, Zoom's got the best
usability/price ratio. Or is there something that's better than Zoom?
Kindest regards,


ps. I guess that ICANN work being, for the most, completely open, it
doesn't matter if Zoom is not encrypted for our community's use of this
