What is a Webinar?

Webinar is an online event service that allows organizations to easily and securely present information in a live format. Webinars combine the internet and telephone allowing participants to attend a workshop presentation while sitting on their own office. The presentation on your computer is live and the person presenter can be heard through the phone, much like a telephone conference call.

Is a Webinar secure?

Your Webinar session is completely private and secure. Webinar uses built-in, state-of-the-art security measures to protect access to data and computers – it is the only online event solution that uses end-to-end encryption for all Webinar data, which includes screen images, files, keyboard and mouse input and chat text. Webinar also offers secure password functionality so organizers can create their own locally stored Webinar-access password and transmit this password to attendees using alternate channels.
