Sunlight is the best disinfectant from the NYSCPA

‘Sunlight Is the Best Disinfectant’

Sunlight is the best disinfectant,” a well-known quote from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, refers to the benefits of openness and transparency. I invoke this quote often as executive director of the NYSSCPA, to illustrate that the most credible and respected organizations operate in an atmosphere of avowed openness.

People who feel uncomfortable under the bright light of scrutiny and criticism often have something to hide.

A high level of openness is an identifying characteristic of well functioning democracy.
