Securing framed walls in basement…

Just wondering…

Working on a small basement room (9’x8′).

Afetr framing a wall, etc., it is nailed up through the top plate into the joist/beam. The bottom plate is also secured to the basement floor.

Should the walls be secured to each other at the corner where they meet?

Any cons in doing this?

Thanks for your thoughts.
