Rethinking IT Professional Ethics
Classical and Current Contexts
Professional computer ethics has widened its scope over the last 20 years as a direct result of the massive growth in computer mediated services by government and industry, and concerns over how data and interaction processes are recorded. These shifts are explored in conjunction with the parallel decline in community trust of government. The growing importance of a broader view and action framework for professional computer societies is delineated.
