Abstract [en]

The security of knowledge is of extreme importance to any organisation, as organizations are increasingly becoming dependent on knowledge assets as a primary source of competitive advantage. However, most organisations have not yet realised the importance of securing these knowledge assets. Despite the fact that knowledge is a public good when shared among others, knowledge assets lose their competitiveness when accessible to un-authorised individuals. This paper is seeking to explore how organisations around Botswana secure their knowledge assets, and by doing so, it categorises knowledge security into three levels; the product, the people, and the process. The product seeks to find how codified knowledge is secured, the process seeks to find how the process of knowledge generation is secured, and people seek to find how organisations handle employees in order to secure knowledge assets. At the end, the paper provides some recommendations/or framework that the organisations can use to better secure their knowledge assets
