In this episode of the Perspectives podcast, sponsored by ABBYY and hosted on, we’ll hear highlights from the May 12th presentation, How to Prevent Your Public PDFs from Leaking Confidential Information.

You may be revealing  legal and accounting “supply chains” of document creation, which could then be used for precise spear-phishing attacks.

However, you still need to have metadata in your PDFs to make them searchable.
