KM at the heart of the WikiLeaks fiasco!

This is taken from the Guardian report into the latest WikiLeaks reports (full article available here http://bit.ly/hkabGs):

Asked why such sensitive material was posted on a network accessible to thousands of government employees, the state department spokesman told the Guardian: “The 9/11 attacks and their aftermath revealed gaps in intra-governmental information sharing. Since the attacks of 9/11, the US government has taken significant steps to facilitate information sharing. These efforts were focused on giving diplomatic, military, law enforcement and intelligence specialists quicker and easier access to more data to more effectively do their jobs.”

Good to know that risk assessments of KM initiatives are being thoroughly conducted before policy is implemented!
