Have you heard about Zoombombing?

We were hit at one of our public meetings a few months ago. It was nasty and we ended up having to close the meeting.  Our community needs your help to prevent this from happening again in the future.

We are pretty well protected against Zoombombing at our Sunday worship services, but less so at our public meetings like ADORE and Contemplative Companions. We are looking for volunteers that regularly attend these kinds of public meetings to help with security.

Basically, you will be elevated to a co-host role and have the ability to mute and remove disruptive participants if needed. It is very similar to what happens during our Christmas Eve service when we ask for volunteers to be in charge of fire extinguishers: we show them where the nearest extinguisher is and how to use it, in the case of an emergency.
We have a self-guided Google Slides presentation that goes over all the tools and some possible Zoombombing scenarios with solutions.  The team is looking for volunteers to go through the presentation on their own and then attend a short 15 minute practice session to try out the tools. If you are interested in helping or have a question, please contact UUBerks IT Services at g.it.services@uuberks.org.
