Since that time, the field has grown to encompass an understanding of the means by which companies and other organizations share information with their employees and members over the Internet. In practice, CMC is intimately involved with the construction of rule based systems that determine who in an organization or corporation should or must be able to access communications that could be described as sensitive data.

There is, however, a risk in sharing what you know, because in most cases, individuals are most commonly rewarded for what they know, not what they share.
