Data Loss or Inadvertent Disclosure with Mixed-Source Documents
Mixed image/digital PDF documents, which are created when scanned and native PDF files are combined into a single document, can create risks at both ends of the eDiscovery process: indexing and redaction.
When information is extracted and indexed from mixed format PDFs, various pages in a single document must be handled differently. Without the proper tools, comments and mark-ups can either obscure portions of a page or can themselves be lost. This loss creates the potential for spoliation claims.
At the other end of the process, the production of mixed PDFs when they contain information that requires redaction, is equally as challenging. For the images, a black box is sufficient. However for text-based PDFs, the sensitive text must be removed from the internal layers of the documents to avoid the inadvertent disclosure of privileged information.
Legal professionals including records managers, litigation support and corporate counsel should attend this online event to understand the risks caused by the creation of mixed format PDFs. We will also investigate best practices for avoiding spoliation and inadvertent disclosure in the e-Discovery process.
