This paper proposes that research should be conducted in how to manage the tension between the conflicts of interest between knowledge sharing and knowledge protection.
This paper gives an overview of the security needs of knowledge management.
A particularly interesting challenge is the conflict of interest between individuals (including enterprises) and communities of practice. Innovation spurred through common interest can be dangerous for individuals in the short term, while beneficial to the community as a whole. Greater understanding of these tensions can assist managers in understanding how and when to apply protections in knowledge management.
Contains useful information on the security needs of knowledge management.
