Interview with Kevin Willems, Software Engineer at iText Software, about PDF Days Europe 2018

Kevin WillemsPDF Association: At the PDF Days Europe, you will be hosting a presentation titled “Redaction in electronic documents” – what’s that about?

Kevin Willems: Redacting is the removal of privileged or protected customer data before publishing or distributing. Something that has gained a lot of importance over the last years and will do so even more once the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) takes effect. While this is a trivial task for certain document formats, there are a few problems when redacting PDF documents. Redaction isn’t simply removing the ability to see sensitive data, it is removing all traces of that content while retain the document properties as best as possible. This talk will delve into what redaction is for PDFs and why it is important. We will showcase different methods of redaction, emphasizing how you can redact your content and how it applies in your business

PDF Association: Who is your presentation aimed at?

Kevin Willems: This presentation is aimed at both developing (how to redact) and managing functions (why and when to redact).

PDF Association: What will the people who attend your presentation be able to take away from it?

Kevin Willems: Be up to date with the do’s and don’ts of redaction in the GDPR era.
