The problem
Access to information and knowledge sharing are critical for global development. Sharing innovations and lessons learned enables and significantly accelerates further innovation and development (such as with the sharing of medical research). Conversely, restricted access to information, the spread of misinformation, and breaches of data security can contribute to social/political divides and erode trust in institutions. Corporations play a central role in determining whether and how information is shared -- including industry information that could accelerate innovation, information shared through social media, and customer and employee personal data
