If you share electronic documents with friends, colleagues, and clients, know the extent of what you share. An electronic file has metadata that may have nothing to do with the reasons you share the file, but everything to do with divulging private information about you, your law firm, or your client to an adversary or the public.

Microsoft has tools to inspect and clean all or parts of metadata from Office documents. Corel WordPerfect can save documents without metadata as well as export them to PDF format. With these tools, what more do you need? Perhaps the ability to automatically remove metadata from numerous file types before they are shared outside the firm.
