Cybersecurity is a significant concern for VDR providers and their clients, due to the highly sensitive nature of the information contained in M&A transactions and pre-IPO due diligence reviews or restructuring or bankruptcy. Audits, fundraising efforts, intellectual property, etc. Unauthorized access or disclosure of this information could have severe financial consequences. VDR features for cybersecurity must include strong password and username control, from end to the end encryption, tamperproof design and deterrent tools, such as document watermarking in order to deter uninvited printing or downloading of sensitive information.

VDRs can assist forensic investigations into security incidents, by providing a detailed audit trail and user activity. These records can aid investigators understand the scope the incident, its cause and the impact of the breach. They also offer insight into weaknesses in data protection practices, allowing companies to take corrective action before the next incident occurs.

Aside from ensuring that the VDR itself is securely protected it is crucial to ensure that users do not override recordings with other data (such as backups). A feature that allows the users who are on the board to mark the recording could be used as an option. The marker would be a separate document that does not have to be saved with the original recording, thus preserving the integrity of the data recorded. In addition, the requirement that users manually save a recording can be removed and replaced with the requirement that data is saved only with a key or other security measure.
