Dubai: The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA), the federal telecommunications regulatory agency of the UAE has issued a stern warning for the users of widely used video conferencing app, Zoom.
While the vulnerability may have been fixed over time, TDRA has advised users to not remain complacent and “update the program and ensure to have its latest updated version.”
One of the very few organizations which have thrived in the pandemic, Zoom was the go-to video conferencing tool amid COVID-19 lockdowns. The platform reportedly recorded a worldwide daily meeting participants volume of 300 million in April 2020. As the world moves to a hybrid work style combining remote work and regular office hours, the platform continues to be the prime choice across the globe.
Launched in 2003, Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority was set up as a controlling authority which ensures sustainability, competitiveness and transparency among the service providers, customers and shareholders.
The Authority is an independent body with duties which include ensuring telecom services are available to all emirates of the country, assuring that the licensed operators fully follow established rules and regulations and developing telecom sector.
