Information Security – Need-to-Share too much?

In the post-9/11 world, disparate government agencies took flack for their need-to-know data sharing policies. To improve intelligence efforts, a need-to-share policy was employed, ideally resulting in more efficient communication and flow of inter-agency information. A need-to-share policy, however, also increases the risk of unauthorized access due to an increased threat-source population. Is opening up access and consequent weaker access-control a worthy security trade-off? Let us know what you think!

  1. In the world of Intelligence its a game of chance, the bigger the net the likelihood to discover something of importance. Each agency tends to share only what it believes it should according to their objectives and mission. I believe there is a need to share unbias information, if there is someone who is directing it like a TV director directs a show.
