Law firm to install metadata removal program

Woodland Hills, CA-based law firm Stone, Rosenblatt & Cha has signed up with UK-based 3BView in order to implement a new program called 3BClean. The program removes document metadata, ensuring secure exchange of critical business information and preventing confidential information leaks. Metadata is information about a document that has been stored by a computer after the user has deleted it. According to 3BView, 3BClean integrates directly into email systems "to provide rule-based transparent removal of sensitive information from email attachments" and can also integrate with intranet, content management, and document management systems. Although Stone, Rosenblatt & Cha is the first U.S. client for 3BView, a number of American law firms are expected to follow suit.

Advanced communications technology a must for law firms

At an event hosted by a Fortune 100 company, a gathering of attorneys from major law firms heard Elizabeth Charnock, CEO of Cataphora, Inc., speak on the importance of new forms of computer technology. According to Charnock, the rapid growth in volume of electronic communications, such as emails, instant messages, and shared electronic documents, has made communications more fragmented. She said that establishing facts of a case and putting together evidentiary data is "considerably harder today than it was just a few years ago." Charnock recommended using new analytic techniques, such as advanced analytics software, which can note changing patterns of communication and individual behavior that are not noted under normal circumstances. Cataphora provides evidence analytics software and services that make use of statistical, mathematical, and linguistic techniques to identify changes and patterns in people's behavior recorded by the communications systems they use.
