October 2022 - MALSP Meeting - Microsoft Teams Data Life Cycle & eDiscovery Best Practices


Synopsis: Microsoft Teams has exploded in use since COVID first began and has become a standard business process for most corporations. Regulatory organizations and plaintiffs have taken note and most, if not all discovery requests now include language explicitly targeting Microsoft Teams or similar collaboration platforms. As a business application Microsoft Teams can drive significant operational and communication benefits but its underlying technical infrastructure makes the application problematic for discovery purpose. During this session we will do a deep dive into (1) how Microsoft Teams manages data on the back end, (2) how retention and security policies need to be implemented, (3) methods to identify relevant data within Microsoft Teams for collection and export, (4) potential pitfalls you should be thinking about as you process and review this type of collaboration data.
