Transparency - The Double-Edged Sword


Published on

Presentation from Enterprise 2.0 SUMMIT in Frankfurt October 28th 2010 on how transparency both enables value-creation and decreases risk for organizations, but also how potential privacy, compliance and security risks need to be managed.

  • @ Stephan: unfortunately, the slides don't cover all aspects of my talk. Transparency is a double-edged sword because you have to balance transparency against risks related to privacy, confidentiality, information accuracy etc. But you are right about the key message - increasing transparency leads to increased trust and also better security because we are more prone to act responsibly when we are trusted to do so. As individuals, we also need to gain more knowledge about how to act in a responsible way and how to deal with potential risks associated with sharing information with others. That is why we also need governance that guides and helps people to make the right decisions about what to share and how in every situation where they share information. It is not enough with telling what people should do and what they shouldn't do with policies and rules. Reality is much more complex than that, and people need help in how to think about sharing and how to deal with privacy etc.

  • Thanks for sharing. Why is transparency a double edged sword? From just looking at the slides this does not become clear to me - seems more transparency leads to trust leads to better control!
