It is finally here – a way to auto-redact in Relativity. Fios has launched Redaction Assistant, an exciting new product that gives you the ability to quickly and efficiently identify and automatically redact repeated and patterned data such as Social Security numbers, customer account numbers, dates and names – all within Relativity.
Redactions are extremely time consuming, fraught with human error, costly and potentially risky for law firms and corporation alike. Certain personal information requires high levels of protection. Missed Social Security numbers, taxpayer ID numbers, financial account numbers or birth dates can all result in sanctions. Fios Redaction Assistant (FRA) allows you to achieve unprecedented levels of consistency, efficiency and speed in your Relativity-based redaction processes. Gone are the painful days of manually redacting the same information over and over again. FRA locates every instance of a word or pattern that you specify as requiring redaction and then automatically redacts it. Review managers can create and save redaction patterns, group them into profiles and make them available to specific reviewers. Reviewers can now focus only on unique content that truly requires manual redactions, while letting FRA handle routine redaction patterns in advance of human review.
An additional feature within FRA is a quality control automation that confirms the intended redactions have occurred and flags any that require manual inspection. Both tabular and graphical reports are included that provide details on redacted items, pages and documents. Review managers can access audit trail reports revealing information such as time of redaction, the person who performed the redaction and associated metadata. This not only saves time, but also adds to the defensibility of your review.
Because FRA resides within the Relativity application, it conforms to the “look and feel” of the Relativity interface. As a result, Relativity users are immediately comfortable and productive with the tool.
Come check out this new application and see how it can save you time and money on your next review. Register for “Redact This” and attend September 20 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
