Like all virtual workspaces where individuals are invited to participate and make contributions, there is the risk that an individual could disrupt the creative process or vandalize the product itself. However, there are a number of mechanisms in place to mitigate this risk and incentives to dissuade inappropriate or destructive behavior within the GCconnex community.
1. GCconnex users are required to use their real names and professional email addresses when registering. Pseudonyms or 'handles' are not permitted.
2. GCconnex is a business tool. It is unlikely that an individual will risk their professional reputation for the sake of mischief.
3. Given that everything that happens in GCconnex is fully documented and tied back to a unique user account, it is easy to identify someone who vandalizes or posts inappropriate content on a GCconnex page.
When using GCconnex, public servants are expected to abide by the Value and Ethics Code for the Public Service.
