Adobe Acrobat PDF Security Webinar

Government customers at all levels, federal, state & local and civilian agencies are always concerned about security. For good reason, according to an IDC report, nearly 36% of government agencies have experienced an information leak in the past 12 months. We know it’s a problem, but what tools can be used to help us stem the leaks of information?

Next week, on March 21st at 2 pm est, I will be delivering a webinar to address these points. I will be covering two major topic areas. The first, primarily for IT managers, will discuss application security in Adobe Acrobat and what this means to their agencies.

The second area I will cover will be for users of Acrobat. I will discuss how to secure your PDF documents and how to remove sensitive information (commonly called redaction) from your PDF documents. I find many times users of Acrobat assume their PDF files are secure because they are a PDF. This is not the case. In Acrobat XI we can apply security at the onset of creating our PDF documents, which is a real time saver.

Redaction is used heavily in the legal areas of government, district attorney and attorney general’s offices to name a few, but for most users they may not be familiar with this term or how to apply redaction in Acrobat. In our webinar, I will demonstrate these features.

I hope you will join me next week in our virtual seminar. For more information or to register, please go here.
