DocsCorp and Payne Consulting have announced there will be a seminar in Sydney on 30th April to discuss the dangers of document metadata. The joint session will be presented by Payne Consulting CEO - Donna Payne.
One of the big challenges businesses face today is protecting themselves from unintentional leaks of confidential data and information.
A number of high profile incidents in the US [White House, Pentagon] in the UK [Tony Blair] and Australia [Westpac Bank] have highlighted the dangers of document metadata and the improper redaction of electronic documents.
Payne Consulting was a company to recognise the dangers of metadata and developed its Metadata Assistant.
Donna Payne is a frequent speaker at legal and technical conferences worldwide and has spoken to US Congressional committees, the Senate and at international judicial conferences on the subject of metadata and preventing accidental disclosure.
Donna Payne is a columnist for several legal and technical publications; she has been featured in syndicated articles on women in technology.
In March 2004 at the annual tech show for the American Bar Association, Payne received the first ever Lex Proficio award for lifetime service advancement of legal software and publishing.
This will be a series of firsts for Donna; first time in Australia, presenting to an Australian audience and climbing the Harbour Bridge.

The DocsCorp Payne Consulting Group alliance
DocsCorp and Payne Consulting announced a new strategic alliance in late 2007. Commenting on the alliance at the time, Donna Payne said that both companies were a natural fit not only in terms of product offerings but also in terms of company philosophy and vision.
"Payne Consulting and DocsCorp are committed to developing innovative solutions that integrate into the Microsoft Office System to deliver higher levels of efficiency, productivity and security for our clients," said Donna Payne.
DocsCorp vice president worldwide sales and marketing, David Woolstencroft, went on to say that their respective clients were the winners from the alliance-they now have a choice when it comes to document comparison and security.
The complimentary products provide corporations, financial institutions, governments and legal firms with a high level of protection and security when distributing business-critical documents and forms beyond the company firewall.
DocsCorp and Payne Consulting clients now have all the tools they need to create, manage and secure PDF documents, convert PDF documents to text searchable or Word documents, redact sensitive information from PDFs, create and fill in PDF forms, compare documents [PDF-to-PDF and Word-to-Word] and the final step in the process-remove harmful or sensitive metadata from documents before sending on to clients or external third parties.
Norm Thomas, director of business development for Microsoft's U.S. Professional Services Group, said: "Legal firms struggle with maintaining security and compliance when distributing documents beyond their company firewalls.
“DocsCorp and Payne Consulting are working together to create solutions built on the Microsoft platform to mitigate this risk and provide customers with confidence when sending sensitive documents to clients, opposing counsel or other third parties."
