Zoom is giving itself 90 days to fix privacy and security issues

Zoom is recently in the spotlight over several privacy and security issues, and the company has decided to do what it takes to maintain consumers' trust. 

In a blog post by Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan, he shared that the company is committed to dedicating the necessary resources over the next 90 days to better identify, address and fix issues proactively. This will also be done in a transparent manner. Some of its action items include: 

  • Conducting a comprehensive review with third-party experts and representative users to understand and ensure the security of all consumer new cases 
  • Preparing a transparency report to detail information related to requests for data, records or content
  • Improving its current bug bounty program 
  • Launching a CISO council in partnership with leading CISOs to facilitate an ongoing dialogue on security and privacy best practices 
  • Carrying out a series of simultaneous white box penetration tests to further identify and address issues 
  • A weekly webinar to provide privacy and security updates to the community

Yuan also revealed that the daily user base increased from 10 million in December 2019 to more than 200 million in March, and Zoom is being used in ways that the company did not anticipate when designing it. He explained that Zoom was built mainly for enterprise customers.
