Controlled Disclosure

Controlled disclosure is releasing information to a restricted group of people or in a controlled manner rather than making the information widely available.

Controlled disclosure is often used to protect sensitive or confidential information from unauthorized access or disclosure.
An example of controlled disclosure might be a company releasing financial information to its shareholders but only allowing certain individuals (such as board members or executives) to access the report.

The company might require these individuals to sign a confidentiality agreement before viewing the information. It might also put measures in place (such as password protection) to prevent the data from being shared more widely.
