 The following are some actions that you can take to secure a Microsoft Teams Meeting.

Restrict Access to Meetings

  • Only invite the necessary people to your meetings.

The following are some actions that you can take to secure a Microsoft Teams Live Event. Note that a Teams Live Event is 
different than a normal meeting. It is a live stream. There are 3 different roles in a Live Event. The first is the producer, 
which can control what content goes live. The second is the presenter (there can be more than one). Presenters are the content 
providers. The producer can display screens and audio and video feeds to the audience. The Attendees are the audience members. 
Attendees cannot speak or participate unless you enable the Q&A feature.

Restrict Access to Live Events

  • In Teams, go to your calendar.
  • In the top right, Click the drop down arrow next to the New Meeting button.
  • Click Live event
  • Fill in the Title and any additional information you'd like to.
  • Invite your presenters.
  • Set your permissions accordingly. You can restrict stream attendees to People and groups, Org-wide (all of Northeastern) or Public (anybody with the link).
  • Check the boxes for the features you want enabled during the event.
  • Schedule your event.
  • Click Get attendee link and follow the instructions to invite attendees (To invite attendees, copy the link and share it or send it in a calendar invite).
  • Note that Presenters can speak but that attendees cannot. If you enabled Q&A as a feature, attendees will be able to post questions there. No other attendees can see that question unless a presenter or the producer (event organizer) publishes it.
