Tech Competence has Consequences

I continue to be astounded by the mistakes that occur through the casual use of technology. Thanks to Robert Ambrogi for this article that illustrates how small technology mistakes can have huge consequences.

My favorite (and its an issue that has been around since the invention of the PDF) is the attempt to redact using the wrong tools (like black highlighting or adding black-out boxes). This has been such a significant short-coming that I have an entire course dedicated to proper use of tools when redacting (whether Acrobat, PDF-DOCS, or Nuance PowerPDF).

The scary thing about the "faulty redaction" story recounted in Mr. Ambrogi's article.. it may have been a method in use for literally years and never reported by opposing counsel happily extracting hidden text..

Another real-life example: do you remember the TSA Training document containing faulty redactions, which revealed TSA methods and practices? These articles (coverage by Wired) and CNN ) discuss that gaff.

Much has changed since 2009, but one thing hasn't: its essential that members of the firm - at all levels - have a thorough understanding of the technology they are using. Small mistakes can have large consequences.
