where character counts and integrity is the keystone


Redacting with Confidence

Another tool for your toolbox. About a year and a half ago I was working at ReymannGroup and one of my jobs was to read the tech and compliance news everyday. I would spend 2 hours a day reading news headlines and stories to see if they applied to our customers and content. In doing so, I came across this PDF from the NSA [National Security Agency] “Redacting with Confidence: How to Safely Publish Sanitized Reports Converted from Word to PDF”.

This is a very well written and illustrated guide on how to recreate documents. Simply, you will need a ‘clean’ environment to work; a place where the new metadata to be included in the file description will be to your liking. You can find the paper on the NSA web site or in my How-To section.
