Extract Systems announces the deployment of ID Shield Redaction Software to redact the backfile of land records filed in Lake County, Illinois. ID Shield Redaction Software will redact Social Security Numbers, Federal Employer Identification Numbers (FEIN) and Employer Identification Numbers (EIN) from Lake County's backfile of over 25 million images. Illinois Public Act 095-0875 mandated the removal of personal information from all publicly displayed records and required counties to create and implement a plan for compliance by January 2010.

The Lake County Recorder's Office has contracted with Cott Systems to provide verification for the redacted backfile of land records. Verification began in October 2009 with an expected completion date of January 2010. Cott Systems' verification team has calculated that ID Shield Redaction Software is delivering an accuracy rate of 99.0% with only 2.9% of the images requiring manual review.

To achieve this high level of accuracy, Extract Systems used Lake County's predefined data types and unique records and forms to develop custom business rules (phrases, text patterns and locations designed to find and eliminate sensitive information). The foundation for Lake County's custom rule set is Extract's National Rule Set™, the industry's most encompassing and reliable set of rules that locates over 20 different sensitive data types anywhere on any document. Extract's capacity to develop highly precise rules saves clients processing time and verification labor costs.

Extract Systems' agreement with Lake County includes a cost-effective and highly accurate plan for future redaction - Legislation Guard™. Legislation Guard™ is a guarantee that Extract Systems will redact additional fields at no charge if a mandate that requires the redaction of additional data types is issued in the future.

ID Shield Automated Redaction Software has been selected by local and state government agencies across the country, including the Office of County Recorder in McLean, Ogle and Winnebago Counties, Illinois; Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno and San Mateo Counties, California; and Lucas and Montgomery Counties, Ohio.
