PDF redaction – what every law firm should know

As we begin 2010, there are a number of surveys and research papers that indicate that more than 50% of data leaks of confidential or private information are accidental rather than malicious.

And just to prove the point, the Transportation Security Administration redaction fiasco hits the news! An improperly redacted security manual on screening procedures at US airports is posted by TSA staff to a web site for all to see.

Ogres have layers and so do PDFs

Redacting paper documents is a fairly simple process—get a marker and strikethrough the text to redact it. Redacting PDF documents is more complicated.

PDF documents are constructed in layers—for example, text is on one layer and images on another. Thus, redacting text with opaque objects is not a foolproof method of redaction as you are simply adding another layer, which can be peeled back to reveal what’s underneath.

To add another layer of complexity to the redaction problem, you need to consider the underlying structure of the PDF. Depending on how the PDF was generated— ie a Word document converted to PDF, or a scanned document output as a PDF—there may be more than one layer of information that needs to be redacted. The problem is it isn’t always obvious what type of PDF you have…

Redact no matter what the PDF type

Download this complimentary White Paper to learn more about redaction and to ensure that you have the correct redaction solution for all the different types of PDF documents your firm is likely to encounter in 2010.
