Protecting Your Business from Zoom-Bombs and Other Videoconferencing Privacy Concerns, Including Preservation and Potential Subpoenas


CLE credits earned: 1.5 GENERAL (or 1.5 OTHER for WA state)

Section I
As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, many of us have transitioned to video-conferencing tools to remotely meet with colleagues and customers. During this CLE, we will discuss the various privacy and cyber-security issues that could be created using these platforms and what you can do to mitigate any potential legal liability.

Section II
Businesses across the country are turning to Zoom and other video conference platforms to replace in-person meetings during COVID-19. Some are also making and keeping recordings of these calls. Recently, government investigators have inquired about video conference recording practices and the availability of responsive recordings in the context of ongoing investigations. We will explore how video conference recordings fit in the context of government investigations and offer best practice recommendations.
