Data Security

Holding Zoom meetings, sharing screens, and recording meetings is approved for High Risk Data, as defined in Stanford Risk Classification Guidelines.

Recording meetings

When recording meetings that include Protected Health Information (PHI) or other regulated data, please be aware that all regulatory requirements apply, including HIPAA. While Zoom has been certified for use with meetings that include such data, you are responsible for ensuring regulatory requirements are met sharing, downloading, and storing the recordings, as with any other regulated content.

Get Started

Before you can use Zoom, you must install the Zoom software for your device. Start by going to the Zoom Download Center or go to and click Download in the footer.

It’s a good idea to install that software ahead of time so it doesn’t delay your first meeting; however, if you haven’t yet done that, Zoom will automatically start downloading the application to your device. You’ll need to install it before you can start your meeting.
