There have the security problems when using Wiki. First of all, wiki is a open platform which is everyone can edit the content on Wiki. Secondly, the content in wiki is opening to anyone. Finally, incorrect content maybe show on Wiki.
Brisbane Airport should creates the guideline and policy for managing their employees using Wiki. This also can assist employees more engaging of using wiki. I suggest some wiki strategies here.
- Assign some admin accounts to department heads or others for wiki contents management.
- Admins should remove the incorrect content immediate.
- Have a short lesson for news user understanding how to use wiki.
- For security issues, important message or information should be sending by other method. e.g. email
