IT and Ethics: Guidance for Professionals

Computing traditionally has been about what could be done, not the ethics of doing something. The unprecedented adoption of Internet technologies worldwide has transitioned computing from an isolated technical activity with few ethical implications to a technology that often raises ethical questions.

Clarity is important on all sides, users, implementers, and operators. Implementations such as Twitter, Google Buzz, and Chatroulette are merely examples. Mundane examples such as remote systems management of desktops and portable devices also raise ethical questions. These are not merely philosophical questions; some of these decisions can have significant impacts and liabilities.

This session will discuss the ethical issues that affect IT, from applications implementation to operations.
