The second part of our conversation with Glenn Fleishman the author of the new Take Control of Zoom from Take Control Books, gets into a discussion of Zoom security, how they have dealt with some of the missteps, and how comfortable you can be using it. Zoom has done an amazing job of handling the, literally, millions of users COVID-19 sent their way. Glenn and Chuck discuss why Zoom beat out some well-entrenched competition, how that competition is trying to catch up, the recording options, and much more.
