Redacting personal data in Zoom Contact Center


 

Zoom Contact Center admins can enable a feature to automatically redact consumers’ personal data from voice, video recordings and transcripts and messaging engagements that are in English. If enabled, Zoom Contact Center will analyze recordings and transcripts, then identify Personal Data Entities and replace it with generic placeholder text. Redacted data can’t be viewed by anyone.

For example, if a voice engagement contains a phone number like (123)-123-1234, it will replace it with [PHONE] in the transcript, and silence the audio portion of the recording that contains that data.

Note: Redacting personal data is separate from the following features, which apply to different areas of Zoom Contact Center and have different use cases.

Prerequisites for redacting personal data

Important: Due to predictive nature of machine learning algorithm that is used in this feature, Zoom Contact Center cannot guarantee 100% accuracy when detecting personal data. Users of this feature are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the redaction results.
