Use of Information Sharing Between Government and Industry as a Weapon

ABSTRACT

Information sharing has been viewed by governments as a way to tap into the knowledge of the non-governmental enterprises which own and operate large segments of critical infrastructures in order to develop concrete intelligence about security challenges.  The effects of globalization and the inherent conflicts of interest create a potential for allowing the process to be used as a weapon of information warfare through abuse of the information sharing structure.
