Ensuring Security in Today’s Virtual World

In today’s digital world, it’s crucial to understand the importance of privacy and security when hosting a virtual event. While the terms privacy and security may seem interchangeable, there are slight differences between the two concepts. Choosing the right webcasting technology for your needs can help ensure both privacy and security of your event.

At GlobalMeet, we understand the importance of enterprise-grade security for virtual events. Continue reading below to learn more about how our enterprise-grade security measures can help protect your event.

Understanding the Key Differences Between Online Security and Privacy

Privacy ensures that no one outside your organization can listen in on your virtual event. After all, you don’t want intruders accessing trade secrets or confidential information discussed during your event. On the other hand, security ensures that hackers and other cybercriminals cannot use your virtual event connection to access your entire network.


For certain events, such as internal product launches and financial reviews, stakeholders may need to know that your event and its contents are kept private. In many instances, it’s even required by law to ensure certain information remains confidential.


Similarly, if you’re holding a C-level quarterly update, you want your discussions kept private. The same applies to town halls where you may share proprietary or confidential company information.

Why Strong Security Measures are Crucial for Building Trust with Customers

According to the latest Cost of a Data Breach Report published by IBM and the Ponemon Institute, data breaches cost companies an average of $4.24 million per incident. Additionally, data breaches can cost a company the trust of its employees, customers, clients, and partners. As a result, protecting personal information requires adequate security, as it has since the inception of the internet.
