Cyber Security Update for Jewish Institutions in the GTA

As Jewish institutions continue to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic, many community activities are now being conducted online. Unfortunately, the increased use of conferencing platforms like “Zoom” has resulted in a new opportunity to spread antisemitic hate through “Zoom-bombing.”

From Yeshiva University in New York, to a Holocaust remembrance event in Germany, we are witnessing a disturbing trend of individuals hijacking Jewish activities, posting graphic materials, and spewing antisemitic vitriol at participants.
