Google Supports Scams Awareness Week
This year, #scamsweek2020 comes at a time where many of us are spending more time at home, and are using a plethora of new apps and communications tools to work, learn, access information, and stay connected with loved ones. We are joining the ACCC Scamwatch team this week to promote the importance of identifying and managing online security risks – some of which we do on your behalf without you even realising and some of which we ask you to make an informed decision about.
- Consider adding an extra layer of verification to help ensure only invited attendees gain access to the meeting.
- When sharing a meeting invite publicly, be sure to enable the “knocking” feature so that the meeting organiser can personally vet and accept new attendees before they enter the meeting.
- If you receive a meeting invite that requires installing a new video-conferencing app, always be sure to verify the invitation—paying special attention to potential imposters—before installing.
Install security updates when notified
