Redaction Reveal

While the big news story of the day is the TSA document leak, some people are labelling this as a direct result of some directive from the Obama administration and some are even passing along the information that they claim is so sensitive that terrorists could use it.

improperly redacted areas indicate that only 20 percent of checked bags are to be hand searched for explosives and reveal in detail the limitations of x-ray screening machines.

ABC, in all it's infinite wisdom, even has the link to the complete document with a sample of a CSA credential.


On the one hand, they are screaming that this is secret information that terrorists could use and then they freely give it up for all to see. Anyone else notice the complete ignorance with which this is being covered?

Even Fox"News" was in on disseminating the allegedly sensitive information, with Fox&Friends listing of some of the ways to bypass screening on this mornings program.

And while this document leak is definitely a bad mark against the TSA, it should be noted that screening procedures have been altered, improved, since March - the date which is shown on the TSA procedural papers.

Proper electronic redaction is the complete removal of content from an electronic document, making it irretrievable and unavailable for view, print, search or copy. Whatever tool organizations choose, they must provide appropriate training for staff, enforce rules on privacy protection, and implement redaction software that’s up to the task. Go to to see a white paper and video showing what went wrong and how to do it right (bet TSA and HSBC Bank wish they’d done so!).
