When you work with the Information Store, you can share information and assertions with other analysts and discover whether other analysts have findings that are of interest to you. You can collaborate with other analysts by uploading new or edited records, and notes to the Information Store.
There are many reasons to share your information. For example:
- To share records that you have created
- To update shared information with new intelligence
- To add notes to new or existing records that provide more insight about an item, or provide operational information
- To benefit from the intelligence shared by other analysts
However, there are also times when you might not want to share or update information. For example, in evidential situations, you might not be allowed (or it might be inadvisable) to share your proposals for further investigation before they are confirmed.
The security settings and processes in your organization might constrain which records you can and cannot share.
