Information Transparency: The other IT

It’s been said that the average person only uses 10% of their total brain potential, and the incredible achievements which have been made (and continue to be made) changed the world. Imagine if we were able to readily tap into that underused 90% and what that could mean for the many facets of our lives, including technological development and our overall evolution. No one knows for certain what the future holds, but having improved access to information does allow for a clearer picture; the more you see, the more can be seen.

“Information technology is intended to facilitate communication throughout the organization, yet the principle barrier that remains will be the understanding of that information flow and the importance it has to the organization. If this understanding can be achieved then the flow will not be impeded.”(Chris Anderson, bizmanualz.com)

Transparency also helps to better comprehend how IT is supposed to function. “The goal of transparency in financial markets’ regulation is to facilitate informed decision making, a corresponding goal in the field of information and communication technology is primarily to breed confidence in the system. For example, the disclosure of cybersecurity risk presumably allows an investor to assess pertinent risk exposures impacting the decision to invest in a company. Content is important, but what defines content (i.e., the norms, standards, protocols, practices [policies]) is equally important. Thus, the disclosure requirements drive decisions regarding what is important to communicate (e.g., data capture, storage, protection, dissemination). For example, transparency-related issues of privacy of information do not specify content, but rather dictate privacy policy and system requirements that will achieve the goal of protection of privacy.” (Vasant Raval, isaca.org)
