Ad Hoc

I often see working groups or standing meetings set up explicitly for the purpose of sharing cyber security information. What amazes me is how quickly these devolve into regularly scheduled knowledge droughts. I'm convinced that the most efficient transfers of knowledge happen in an ad hoc manner. When one or more parties seek knowledge and one or more parties have knowledge, the transaction is smooth and effortless. Kind of like water flowing downstream. Working groups, on the other hand, remind me of salmon swimming upstream to spawn....

My colleagues and I routinely share actionable information. It's all built on trust. There are no MOAs, no MOUs, and no working groups.
