Retention policies govern the length of time that video content is stored. Key factors to consider include the ability to store video in accordance with regulatory requirements. For example, an allegation that video was used for sexual harassment may require long-term retention, whereas a recording of a video conference in which future product plans are discussed may require shorter retention times. Successful strategies will support required content retention regulations, and should align with the approach used to govern retention of documents.
Example Retention Policies:
- Delete all student-created videos at the end of a semester
- Retain all executive town hall broadcasts for three years, delete all other video after six months unless a request is made to retain it for a longer period of time
- Delete all video videos after 30 days
- Do not allow videos stored outside of the country of origin
