The Paralegal Voice: Exploring Modern Redaction Methods for Paralegals

The Paralegal Voice: Exploring Modern Redaction Methods for Paralegals
The latest edition of The Paralegal Voice, “Exploring Modern Redaction Methods for Paralegals” co-hosted by Vicki Voisin and me, is now available at Legal Talk Network.
When it comes to redaction and the process of removing confidential information from legal documents, some paralegals still rely on the traditional yet cumbersome method of using a black marker and the copier machine. A new option is growing in popularity: the use of specialized electronic tools like Redact-It, which is specifically built for redaction. On this podcast, Christine Musil, Director of Marketing for Informative Graphics Corporation, joins us to discuss the benefits of this modern face of redaction and how paralegals can get current and step away from their redaction methods of yesterday.
Also in this episode:
  1. How Redact-It was born
  2. The benefits of using electronic redaction tools
  3. The differences between Adobe Acrobat and Redact-It
  4. Embarrassing examples of sensitive data leaked due to poor redaction
  5. How electronic redaction software prevents snafus
  6. Tips for using electronic redaction software
  7. Vicki’s practice tip and Lynne’s social media tip
