Summary

Custom activity for PDF redaction without the use of any third party software. Without any disruption to the user, the activity irreversibly redacts confidential text that matches user-defined regex-patterns.

Overview

Redaction is to hide or remove confidential text before publication or distribution.  It’s an essential step to guard personally identifiable information. 

Not doing so can lead to costly compliance risks for organization  This is an essential process across all bodies of government and commercial institutions. 

It's especially important in the medical and legal fields.   Millions of documents are redacted everyday by armies of people, who are prone to error.  Automating this task can save millions of hours, improve accuracy, reduce risk exposure, and reduce the time required to safely publish requested documents. Current Challenges to redaction are:
  • Mistakes can lead to costly compliance risks
  • Lack of Awareness of redaction protocols
  • Manual, Tedious, and Error Prone
  • Time-Consuming even with Desktop Software
  • Batch Processing is not readily available
  • Wastes lots of Paper (Environmental Impact)
Leveraging OCR, a UiPath Robot locates and redacts sensitive data based on given Regex patterns. The activity comes with pre-built regex patterns for items such as social security number, phone number, dates and others. In addition, the user can define their own custom regex patterns as well. Without any disruption to the user, the activity irreversibly redacts confidential text that matches user-defined regex-patterns. The operation works entirely in the background without need for UI interation.

- options for more intelligent redaction through use of Document Understanding and UiPath AI Center.
- Handwriting redaction
