As with any profession that involves security, ICT specialists must be held to the highest standards of personal integrity and professionalism. In today’s global economy you must be aware of both national and international laws as well as the social impact of actions you take with respect to the privacy and integrity of Information systems.

The Role of Professional Organizations Unlike like doctors, lawyers, and some engineers, you don’t need to be state licensed to be an IT practitioner. Yet the work we do can impact public safety or have other broad reaching effects, so the industry makes an effort to self regulate.

Different Ideas about Ethics Plato was a philosopher who lived during the 4th century BCE. He is remembered for his "Parable of the Cave" and the notion of "Forms“. His idea was that we should imagine a cave in which prisoners are bound in such a way that they see shadows of objects carried behind them cast upon a cave wall in front of them. They only have dim firelight to see by. Statues of images of objects in the outside world are carried so that their shadows are seen by the prisoners.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
