Both parties are dealing with the same issues, particularly in regards to information: its quality, quantity, transparency, and ability to be handled effectively. While the trend toward information sharing may take time to catch on, we have already seen the first steps, such as the FinCEN Exchange in the United States, which aims to improve public-private information sharing.
