From HBR blog, with Sean West, also from Eurasia Group:
WikiLeaks opens a whole new world of risk for your business. With infoanarchists scrambling to pry loose your secrets and put them on the web — partly just because they can — the danger is mind-boggling.
Forget about worrying that some executive's flip e-mail message will fall into the wrong hands. Now there's a real risk that the entire corporate brain could be exposed, just as the diplomatic brain of the U.S. government has been opened for all to explore.

Dave is an old friend. When he was National Intelligence Officer for Economics and Globalization at the National Intelligence Council, he came to most of my Naval War College events and we bonded as similarly minded thinkers. Dave later went on to be vice chair of the NIC and then head of policy and planning at State for the last stretch of Bush-Cheney. He's now the head of macro research for Ian Bremmer's fine political risk consultancy, Eurasia Group.
I recently signed on with Eurasia Group as a consultant, in large part because I thought it would be fun to work with Dave again. He's a rare talent in this world.
Good post. Eye-opener.
