“We appreciate your announced intention to address each of these issues,” the letter reads, “but it is alarming that Zoom allowed these security breaches to affect millions of users and did not identify or resolve them until they became public.” In light of those concerns, Warren and Markey ask CEO for detailed and specific information on the company’s data practices and security history.
