Last year, the worst ransomware outbreak in history happened. A cyber hazard modeling company lost about 4 billion dollars of global revenue. So many stakeholders both internal and external were affected, with financial datasets and patient records being exploited.
Records affirm that attacks of this kind will become more rampant and may cause a collapse of some businesses. A study by Juniper discovered that over 2.8 billion worth of data records of customers were stolen in 2017 alone, and predicted that this figure will triple in the next 5 years, and will cause a lot of financial losses of about 8 trillion dollars.
Even with these astounding projections, some organizations are still failing to look into this issue. As a matter of fact, it is recorded that only 42% of small and medium-size corporations are worried about cyber-attacks, and more than a quarter of these corporations lack cyber training. Small and medium-size businesses are substandard when it comes to cyber security strategies and this opens them to risk.
Encryption simply means coding messages so that only the person you sent it to can read it. In other words, helping you protect your internet activity and communications. It keeps the truth of your communications and prevents tampering so that the message you received was not secretly altered during transfer.

It will force encryption across Zoom running on desktop, mobile and Zoom Rooms, as well as for H.323/SIP endpoints except PSTN telephone. It will also force end-to-end group messaging. Encryption may impact performance as it requires more processing cycle on the participants’ devices.
