Covey in his book The Speed of Trust indicates Nike brand presidents say in their Corporate Responsibility Report, “We want to build trust and enable stakeholders to judge us not on perception, but fact. Transparency is an essential tool in this process”. Further Covey associates being open and not hiding information as part of that which he calls Behavior #3, Create Transparency. From software, technology and information perspectives transparency can be good; there is however a fine line from a security perspective (e.g.). This brand-new videocast about PCI DSS may help you further develop a sense that a fine line needs to exist. Likely Speed of Trust read slowly would help you develop a sense of this as well. By 2020 pros and the general public will increasingly move towards being more so a global community of practice, sharing and open honest collaborations. This will help to produce greater overall value and joy for all, for every. This will however make for challenges for security professionals. They too will need to collaborate more so to ensure best balances so code, data, processes and so on have only the structure and safe-guards that are truly necessary. To progressively achieve this quality, value, excellence and simplicity will need to be increasingly driven upwards and inwards. The elevating and embedding type assurances that will be needed to help ensure best balances requires all to start thinking now about 2020 and beyond. Ideally as part of your doing so you will find it enjoyable and valuable to read Inherent Quality Simplicity. The book is structured to easily carry and read in a day. It is scheduled to be available 7 November 2007.
