OIAA Zoom Security Guide Workshop 14 January 2023

Thank you to the nearly 600 participants who joined us on Saturday Jan. 14th for OIAA’s “Don’t let Zoom Bombers Win” Security Workshop.

Your response to this event was overwhelming and the love and care felt in the room was truly inspiring. Special thanks to Thom R. for providing such an engaging and informative session!

In response to this workshop we have created the Tech Steppers, a Technology subcommittee that provides support to OIAA directory meetings and their attendees for online security and account settings. The Tech Steppers seek to assist groups improve their online safety and security posture and better defend their meetings from potential and active disruptors.
