About the Presenter
Lisa McComb is the CEO and Co-Founder of Rectify. Lisa is an operational expert building a new privacy standard for sharing documents.

As businesses participate in increased data sharing, privacy is becoming more difficult. Removing sensitive content remains an extremely manual process and most organizations resort to doing nothing at all – which could lead to potentially hefty fines.

Lisa McComb’s expertise in this space results from her 22 years as a paralegal in the corporate legal department at SBC Communications (now AT&T). A significant career shift occurred when Lisa was tasked to manage the national legal and regulatory demands when SBC began conducting mergers and acquisitions to re-create AT&T. This work involved the Department of Justice, FCC, hundreds of outside counsel and coordination with state regulatory response teams. Protecting sensitive information such as intellectual property and consumer information was paramount. Lisa quickly became the operational expert in protecting sensitive data in documents, so much so, that SBC provided funding for her to start her own company.


The team that helped Lisa support this effort is the core team at Rectify today. Rectify has extreme domain experience and is establishing best practices beyond data redaction. The team works every single day to minimize the human interaction involved with protecting private data in documents. Rectify reduces the redaction process by 90% which allows our clients to engage in more productive meaningful work.


Lisa and her team have protected tens of millions of records and, Lisa is passionate about making the process less daunting and establishing standards that can be adopted globally.
