These days organisations can run themselves ragged protecting their internal information assets, but it's of little comfort when 'soft' information - information that may have little inherent value, but yield knowledge when linked up with hard information by competitors - is so easily shared by employees within their social networks outside the workplace. Karen Lawrence Öqvist provides pointers for organisations to turn those potential intelligence risks into receptors by  providing a forum in which employees can share and be heard within the workplace.

These days organisations can run themselves ragged protecting their internal information assets, but it's of little comfort when 'soft' information - information that may have little inherent value, but yield knowledge when linked up with hard information by competitors - is so easily shared by employees within their social networks outside the workplace.
