PRIA has recently released a document to give land records offices a set of best practices to keep in mind for their current or new land records management system. We’ll dive into the information and summarize the takeaways from each section.
Government Data breaches
Data breaches and data leaks have been far more common over the past few years than people know, especially within government. Governments are becoming commonly known for their data breaches throughout the years because they have been focused on making private information public in a timely fashion, but they have been relying on the manual redaction process, and too often personally identifiable information (PII) gets missed.
The Property Records Index exists in order to find necessary information so a document itself can be retrieved. The documents determine whether ownership of property or an interest in the property may have changed. The only way to ensure the integrity of the indexes is for the recording jurisdiction to be responsible for, and to maintain, quality control. In order to maximize the Recorders’ Index, it is critical to follow a guide of best practices in order to index consistently and accurately.
I have worked at Extract for four-months now, and my knowledge of Government entities, document classification, indexing, and data redaction has far exceeded my wildest expectations. Next week you will not find me behind my computer at my desk in Madison, WI, but rather attending the PRIA 2017 Winter Symposium to sponge up even more knowledge of how the Extract Systems Platform can be beneficial for any Land or Property Recorders offices in counties across the nation.
Land records have been electronically submitted and recorded for over a decade in the United States, representing millions of successful e-recording transactions. Submission requirements still vary significantly among e-recording jurisdictions as far as completeness and accuracy tolerance are concerned.

Here are three key points that will continue to guide Extract’s focus in 2016.
