Governments need to balance privacy and security concerns with the desire to make the information more readily accessible.

Competing with the Private sector in such a way is going to spurn some surprising twists and turns on this innovative rollercoaster ride. Citizens will have greater access to, and influence on, their government as a result. And this is why such a unified collaboration is necessary to complement transparency but still maintain public safety without affecting performance.
We wait with bated breath to see the outcomes of such an illustrious summit this December.
