Retention Policies and Production of Data From Microsoft Teams, Cisco WebEx, Skype, Zoom, Slack, and Other Platforms
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will examine the evidentiary and discovery issues arising from the pervasive use of video conference platforms. Counsel must understand what data is being created, the cost of storing it, how that data should be managed, retention policies, and potential legal obligations.
- Overview of platforms
- Recording policies and procedures
- Discovery mapping
- Role and relevancy of statutes addressing non-consensual recording
- Proportionality in discovery
- Objections to discovery
- Complying with Rule 26(g) in regard to video conferencing materials
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are counsel's legal obligations with video conferencing?
- How does counsel determine whether to record or retain recorded conferences?
- Were there chat messages in the platform? Are they relevant and need to be preserved?
- Did anyone take manual notes during the meeting? Are they relevant and need to be preserved?
- How are the video conferences produced and preserved? How can they be accessed and reviewed?
- What must counsel do in order to comply with Federal Rule 26(g) when it comes to video conferencing?
