Metadata threat still looms large

DocsCorp, the Australian developer of integrated PDF management and workflow solutions, has announced the availability of complimentary White Paper on metadata management to highlight the dangers of metadata in business-critical documents.

The driver for the White Paper was the recent notices by the courts in Massachusetts and New Jersey that indicated that law firms were continuing to submit documents electronically to the courts that were either improperly redacted or had not been cleansed of certain metadata types.

It's been over 10 years since the term metadata made its way into the legal vernacular. However, the term is just as relevant today as it was then. The risk of both visible and invisible metadata is real, posing a serious threat to law firms and their clients.

Moreover, the courts are increasingly taking note of metadata with the Arizona Supreme Court recently citing that you cannot separate an electronic document from its metadata.

TechnoLawyer author John Heckman has penned the new White Paper on metadata management and protection. John concludes that metadata will remain an issue for the foreseeable future as more people collaborate on documents.
