Information sharing raises significant policy issues, including specifically how to achieve security while maintaining civil liberties in a democracy. These competing needs, however, do not present a dichotomous choice between security and privacy requiring the trading of one for the other in a zero sum game -- rather they constitute dual obligations, each to be maximized within existing constraints. The focus of this panel is to identify and articulate the precise nature of the conflict between security interests and privacy concerns in the context of information sharing in order to achieve some better understanding of potential solutions -- organizational, procedural and technical.
