Demand for Processing Audio/Video Files Surge

As requests for audio data increases in discovery, the need for affordable and defensible methods to process this data is readily apparent. This rise in audio discovery is primarily the result of increased regulatory requirements and the fact that more and more employees are trying to avoid a digital trail.
The variety of proprietary formats and the large amount of audio data makes this both a difficult and expensive task. Therefore being able to index and analyze audio data quickly and efficiently should be of high importance.
Tips for dealing with audio files include: 1. anticipating the increased demand for audio and video files; 2. identifying affordable technology to access and process the data; 3. creating efficient workflows for arching and processing the data; 4. determining if your vendor has experience dealing with audio files; and 5. building strong IG and use policies around audio and video files.
