Security, Remote & Office Services Update

MS Teams:
The Provincial Court recently announced the approval of MS Teams for trials.

A step-by-step guide to appearing in a MS Teams proceeding and surrounding etiquette can be found here.

While at Reportex we prefer to use the Zoom and WebEx platforms, we are prepared to support our clients using MS Teams. We will be offering firm training sessions on MS Teams for clients who are required to use that platform for court or any other remote proceeding. To book a MS Team training session, please contact us today and we will be happy to assist.

Zoom 5.0

A friendly reminder that Zoom 5.0 (released April 27) is now available. This is a mandatory update for all Zoom users.

The Zoom 5.0 update includes support for AES 256-bit GCM encryption.

According to the Zoom website, this encryption provides added protection for meeting data and greater resistance to tampering.

More details on the Zoom 5.0 update and features (including how to report a user and the new encryption shield) can be read on the Zoom blog.

Return to the office:
Reportex, All-Star by Reportex and Island Reporters are all tentatively scheduled to reopen July 6.  In preparation for this, we are currently establishing protocols and taking all necessary steps to ensure compliance with health and safety measures to keep our staff, reporters and clients comfortable and protected.

Until then, we will continue to offer remote proceedings to all of our clients.
