Organizations increasingly are relying on video conferencing platforms to conduct daily business affairs. Did you realize that many of these platforms save recordings, including potentially on individual employees’ computers or in the cloud? For example, Zoom is a widely used video conferencing tool, and recordings can be saved either online with Zoom, or locally on a PC. (In Windows, the default location is C:\Users\[Profile Name]\Documents\Zoom.)
In litigation matters, attorneys should consider asking custodians whether they have used a video conferencing platform when engaging in potentially relevant conversations. Digital forensic experts like ELIJAH can assist with forensic collection of recorded video sessions, whether stored locally, on servers, or in the cloud. Recorded sessions also can be hosted in eDiscovery platforms like Relativity.
Similarly, organizations should consider video conferencing issues when evaluating their policies that address computer usage, data backups, and document retention. Information technology service providers can assist in devising appropriate solutions for local device management that ensure locally stored video conference recordings are securely backed up.
