I've worked for a variety of technologies companies. In working for startups I've noticed a wide variety of opinions about whether sharing calendars is a security risk. I can imagine that it would be bad if someone learned that sales was having a meeting with Company X. But the risk would be manageable by the individual users and the same info is available through other means.
The downsides of hiding calendars are easy for me to "imagine". Hiding calendar information prevents somebody from sharing it with their spouse or other person that is considered trustable. For me, the biggest inconvenience is that I can't see all of my calendars in one place. It also means I have to go into multiple accounts to be able to update calendar events instead of doing it from one place.
- Are there other expected risks from calendar sharing?
- Are the risks from calendar sharing widely considered to be serious enough to cause the inconvenience that is inevitable?
