Does anyone know which format is most secure (less 'hack' friendly) when a document is uploaded to a project. PDF or Word Document?

from which standpoint do you mean? I will say that Word documents in general are much easier to modify (anyone with Word can modify the doc), but PDF's are more difficult. However, regarding just from a Workfront standpoint, I'm not sure there's a difference.

Hi, Greg. Security in meaning an outside intruder tries to hack information--break in! Are they able to syphon (extract) data easier from a pdf file or word document file.
