All law firms need to have the right word processing tools in place to create business documents, memos and PDF files. As you create these files, it’s possible to inadvertently expose sensitive client information if you fail to properly scrub your files for metadata that contains deletions and redactions containing personally-identifiable information. Cybercriminals are aggressively going after sensitive client information to commit cybercrimes and are increasingly targeting law firms of all sizes. According to the ABA, roughly 1 in 5 firms reported facing at least one security breach.
