How does cloud call recording work?

Telephone calls are recorded with the use of call recording software. The recorded conversation becomes data is then encrypted and stored on an internet based storage system (also called a cloud). This means that the data is not physically stored on site, and cannot be damaged by physical factors such as fire or flood. It also provides organisations online access to the data from any location where there is internet.

How long can call recordings be kept for?

Depending on the industry, call recordings need to be stored for minimum periods of time (usually between 180 days and 5 years). It is, however, possible to store call recordings for much longer than this (or indefinitely) because this data is encrypted and stored in a cloud. The time periods can be specified in your call retention policy.

Verbal contracts made over the telephone are legislated and regulated throughout the world. Recording these conversations enables organisations to show compliance with certain regulations. It can help to settle disputes, monitor performance, and identify training opportunities.

Can I restrict access to recordings?
