As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to push more organizations to embrace video conferencing platforms, information governance professionals may find themselves having to parse the nuance of what data should or should not be preserved more closely. This might hold especially true for platforms such as Zoom, where preestablished recording preferences could play a key role in that discussion.

To be sure, whether it’s audio, visuals or even instant messages exchanged between participants, video conferences host a variety of data that may be of interest in litigation. But while the restrictions of the pandemic may be driving more businesses to engage with video platforms, it likely has not had the same impact on the adoption of information governance tools developed to preserve that data.
