Beyond doubt the humanity has entered an age of data dominance. As the need for safety and predictability grows, it becomes increasingly difficult to balance security and individual civil liberties. Therefore, the balance between security and these liberties is not constant and perfect, given that the expansion of security challenges tends to be inversely proportional with the broadening of individual freedoms in cyberspace. Information and knowledge is much greater today than it ever was. Under these conditions, maintaining a proper balance between cyber security and users rights might be challenging and difficult to achieve. Hence in this paper I underscore the need for extended transparency and cooperation in cyber early warning in order to increase the quality of cyberspace governance through public private policies focused on open and transparent intelligence collection.
