Youth Friendly and Safe Virtual Conference Tools

I am a Scout Leader and over the past few months I have been utilizing Zoom, Cisco Webex, Google and other virtual meeting tools not just for Scouts, but in my work life.

 

I am trying to get a read on the more safe option for use with a youth group.  We are using Zoom the most and we are advising the Scouts to assign a password and to ensure people connected have to be approved to join.

 

As long as we take these precautions i guess I can deal with risk.  However I was curious on other recommendations.  I went to check Safe and Secure online site, but there is nothing that points me in a direction of tools.

 

Thoughts?

Christine,

While not aimed at youth groups, the advice from NSA is likely to help you decide on your options

See the announcement article Working from Home? Select and Use Collaboration Services More Securely

and the basic guide. May 7, 2020 update,

plus the more detailed version which explains the factors more completely,

Thank you for working with the Scouts. Good luck with them
