Ironically versatile, this jargon-y noun/verb/adjective hurts both sides of the IT/C-suite aisle. Like its agricultural namesake, a corporate 'silo' siphons data top-to-bottom, squashing lateral, inter-departmental teamwork. The enemy of a communicative, goal-oriented culture, a 'silo mentality' starves efficiency and collaboration, kills productivity. 'Siloing' is worse yet in a cyber security context: data held hostage, threat prevention undermined, defenses break down. The dangers are obvious, and business leaders are moving to steer clear. So let's encourage progress—get those silos gone and let ideas flow free.
