Zoombomb phenomenon affects Kewaunee County extension

The Land Rent Survey Webinar initially slated for this past Tuesday has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 16th, at 7 PM. The original attempt to hold the session had to be aborted due to a phenomenon known as Zoombombing. Zoom is a popular streaming service that allows for teleconferencing. It is being utilized by corporations, college professors, and the Kewaunee County Extension to avoid large gatherings. Think of it like photobombing, both involve unwanted guests except in this instance it occurs on a video platform. The ability to steal trade secrets from rival companies could be one consequence. For most, the threat comes when hackers gain access to account information and passwords. Many people use the same password on multiple services like Netflix or online banking.

Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says security will be beefed up for the make-up webinar. The land rent survey was conducted from December to February, but Bjurstrom isn’t worried about the recent economic effects altering prices too much. She says those values have been relatively consistent for years. Bjurstrom is nervous about dairy farmers. She says milk dumping hasn’t been called for locally yet, but it is already becoming a common problem across the state.
