From the Paper:

"The new paradigm of knowledge, violence and wealth implies that business, governments and individuals are collecting and storing more sheer data than any previous generation in history. Knowledge and information are the currency of power today. But, it is not a guarantee that all information collected is true and accurate. The entry and dominance of information technology in all aspects of life in this century has generated various issues that affect the entire social, political and economic structure of world economies."
