Hi Laurent,

I wouldn't.  I don't think audio is particularly secure.

I'd make your recordings on a laptop, with a decent mic, then immediately
encrypt the file with a password.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve

If I could maybe turn the question around for you, what would you suggest as
an audio recording solution which could be seen as part of making a
reasonable effort to protect your clients' personal data?

All best
Laurent
