Cybersecurity is an issue of great concern for VDR providers and their clients due to the highly sensitive nature of the information that is used in M&A deals, pre-IPO due diligence reviews, bankruptcy or restructurings, audits, proprietary intellectual property, fundraising efforts, etc. Unauthorized access or disclosure can cause serious financial damage. VDR security features must include strong password and username control, complete end to secure encryption, tamper-proof design and deterrent features like document watermarking, to deter uninvited printing or downloading of sensitive information.

VDRs are able to support forensic investigations into security incidents, by providing detailed audit trail and user activity. These records can assist investigators to understand the extent the incident, its cause and the impact of the breach. They can also provide insights into the weaknesses of data protection procedures, allowing organizations to correct their mistakes prior to the next breach.

It is crucial to ensure that users do not overwrite recordings by combining other data, such as backups. As such, an additional feature could be implemented which enables those on board to create a marker within the recording. This marker would be a separate file which is not stored with the original recording, thus preserving the integrity of the recorded data. As an alternative, the requirement that the board manually save a recording may be removed and replaced with the requirement that data is saved only merill datasite with a code or other secure method.
