Judge Daniel Anderson responded to yesterday’s post Metadata: What You Can’t See Can Hurt You. He recommends using the Microsoft Office add-in that removes hidden data.
With his permission, I’d like to share his comments:
Metadata is a big problem in an appellate court because documents are circulated among a large group of people and the hidden data can be very “revealing” to someone who knows how to look for it.
I suggested that the add-in be used in the Wisconsin Court System. After evaluation, CCAP–the best government IT program in the State–will be updating all work stations with this add-in.
