How "transparent" is your data?

With Google's Government Requests page, everyone can now see what types of requests are coming from government agencies across the globe. It's interesting to see the kind of requests that Google gets from government.

This brings up a great question about "Transparency" in government across the board. How we share our data has as much to do with the process as the data itself. Especially now with so many social networks, social media, and mobile integration into daily life (with smartphones, tablets, etc.), we need to stop and think about how "transparency" can improve the experience people have dealing with government agencies.

Corrections Cloud is a great example of ultimately being transparent, while still being secure behind protected logins and account management provided by Corrections Technology Group. With the power of Google Apps, Corrections Cloud allows all users to actively collaborate without the concerns of data leakage. This comes at a great time for Corrections when people now require more accountability from their governments, but without any real way of getting it. Within the Corrections Cloud domain, users can choose who and when they share what with (say that ten times fast), and administrators can help to manage this as well with analytics and reports back to them. 

How else can Corrections Cloud continue to improve the online experience for corrections professionals?
