Best way to show current meeting "sensitivity" status


We have 3 or 4 "sensitivity levels" of discussions that are permitted based on the current attendees. Simple example: if only employees are on the call then proprietary info is allowed but if external customers are on, proprietary info is disallowed.


I'm looking for the best way to *dynamically* set a visual indicator on a live meeting that can be changed during the meeting to indicate this. Could be the background color of the main meeting panel (*not* an individual user's background - the entire meeting window background) or maybe color of the title bar or a banner / title including "EXTERNAL" vs "INTERNAL" or ...? Having someone manually change the indicator is fine - doesn't need to be automatic.


Scenario: We start a meeting in "blue" mode which means employees only so proprietary info is ok. During the meeting we add a customer so switch to "red" mode meaning no proprietary info. 


What's the best way currently to do something like this?


Many thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to customize the colors of the Zoom meeting window. 

The only workaround I can think of would be to have a participant or the host rename themselves in the meeting to indicate the current state. For example, John Smith would rename himself from John Smith (Blue) to John Smith (Red) as needed.
