Pen & Paper
Lack of confidentiality awareness resulting in press leaks due to inadvertent disclosures.
Team members are unaware how much information they can share about a confidential project, and unsure how much information non-member knows about a confidential project.
Design a way for the legal team to track every single individual disclosed on confidential projects in order to (1) control the flow of information, (2) educate employees how much information can be shared, and (3) establish confidentiality awareness.
Create a proposed solution within 3 weeks.
Track every single individual disclosed on any Grand Challenge Team Project, both internally (Amazon) and externally (non-Amazon).
Establish a culture of confidentiality through the approval process by controlling how much information members can share, and by educating them on how to handle confidential information.
Providing control for project leads

Systematic submission & approval of new disclosures: request to disclose additional people on a confidential project prior to meeting with them.
