Government Data breaches

Data breaches and data leaks have been far more common over the past few years than people know, especially within government.

Princeton Hosts Second Court Summit – Brings courts and technology together

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would attend Princeton. Boasting two former presidents, several supreme court justices, the founder of Amazon, and chairman of Google as some of the famous alumni. Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to “Princeton, NJ” for the second Industry Summit coordinated by the National Center for State courts (NCSC). The goal of the summit was to bring NCSC staff, court representatives and their system providers together in a non-tradeshow environment to talk about the current and future state of technology in the courts.

Reduce error rate? Easy, automate your workflows

Reduce error rate? Easy,  automate your workflows

I am human. I am not perfect. I make errors, as all humans do. I can also appreciate all the advances in technology that allow me to reduce my error rate. Whether it be the little red line that shows up underneath words spelled incorrectly while I am typing an email, or the GPS on my phone that reroutes automatically after I miss a turn. These advances in technology allow me to focus on other tasks that humans are needed to accomplish, that no robot or software can supplement.

Redaction Service: In-House or Outsource?

Redaction Service: In-House or Outsource?

When deciding on how to proceed with a document redaction project often times the most important question an organization needs to answer is: “Should we do this with internal resources or pay experts to do it for us?” This can be a complicated question to answer but most organizations should be able to answer it by weighing the pros and cons of each with three factors in mind. The three factors that need to be considered are document origin (historical backfile or day-forward), volume (how many documents?) and redaction software (automated redaction or seek-and-redact). Of those three factors, document origin is the most import to consider first.
