For example, dataobtained from consumer monitoring and tracking can be valuable from a commercialstandpoint while also providing potential for ethical misuse by compromising consumers'privacy.Prior to system installation, management must often generate an acceptable trade-off bydeveloping appropriate policies and standards that are agreed upon by all stakeholders.We want to emphasize the importance of being aware of both the positive and negativeeffects of information systems.DISCUSSION4.1. UNDERSTANDING ETHICAL AND SOCIAL ISSUES RELATED TO SYSTEMS
The development of the Internet and electronic commerce has brought additionalimportance to ethical dilemmas in information systems. The principles of right and wrongthat individuals and society employ to govern their conduct are referred to as ethics.Information technology, like earlier technologies like steam engines, electricity, thetelephone, and the radio, can be utilized to advance society, but it can also be used tocommit crimes and jeopardize treasured social values.Observation: U.S. federal sentencing guidelines adopted in 1987 mandate that federaljudges impose stiff sentences on business executives based on the monetary value ofthe crime, the presence of a conspiracy to prevent discovery of the crime, the use of
structured financial transactions to hide the crime, and failure to cooperate withprosecutors (U.S. Sentencing Commission, 2004).A MODEL FOR THINKING ABOUT ETHICAL, SOCIAL, AND POLITICAL ISSUESAs a manager of information systems, you may encounter ethical dilemmas that arereflected in social and political discourse. The processes that connect ethical, social, andpolitical challenges are depicted in Figure 4.1.Consider society as a relatively quiet pond on a hot summer day. What happens if youthrow a rock into the middle of the pond? Of sure, there are ripples. These ripples willtake time for social structures to respond to.
