Upgrade to Zoom 5.0 Before May 30

Upgrade to Zoom 5.0 Before May 30, 2020

On April 27, Zoom released Zoom 5.0. With AES 256-bit GCM encryption, Zoom 5.0 will provide increased protection for meeting data and resistance against tampering. After May 30, 2020, all Zoom clients on older versions will be required to upgrade before joining meetings as GCM Encryption will be fully enabled for all Zoom meetings.

Please plan accordingly. The Zoom client should automatically prompt to update itself before May 30. For those using Zoom on personal devices, we strongly suggest you consider upgrading to the latest Zoom Client as soon as possible. Here is the link to the Zoom client downloads: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/207373866-Zoom-Installers

The Rivier IT team will work to make sure that all Rivier-owned or managed devices are updated before May 30. If you have any concerns, please contact IT at itsupport@rivier.edu. Thank you.
