The bankruptcy judge overseeing the 12 cases required Garlock Sealing Technologies, Inc., to pay for the cost of redacting social security numbers and other PII prior to production and appointed Karl Schieneman as the special master to oversee the redaction and production process. After reviewing available options, Schieneman elected to use technology provided by BeyondRecognition.
BeyondRedaction technology is able to group documents based on visual similarity. This process enables reviewers to learn where the PII, trade secret, privilege, etc. is contained in the different document types and greatly speeds review and makes redactions far more consistent.
As part of its process, BeyondRedaction catalogs where the graphical elements or glyphs are located on each page. BeyondRedaction’s global glyph catalog associates text values with various glyphs so that the system knows the page coordinates for the various text values. This cataloging enables BeyondRedaction to redact based on either the text values that were used, or based on page coordinates even if there were no text values associated with the glyphs.
