Articulate the social responsibility of members of an organizational unit and encourage full responsibility. Meeting one`s own commitments is a matter of integrity and honesty. For the IT professional, it is important to ensure that the elements of the system work as intended. In addition, if employment contracts are entered into with another party, this part is required to properly inform that part of the progress made in completing this work. “Well-intentioned actions, including those that perform assigned tasks, can cause unexpected damage. In this case, the person or person responsible is required to reverse or mitigate the negative consequences as much as possible. One way to avoid unintentional harm is to carefully consider the potential effects on all parties involved that have been made by decisions during their design and implementation. This seems particularly relevant to cybersecurity issues. Honor contracts, agreements and responsibilities awarded.
BACKGROUND NOTE: This section refers in large part to IFIP`s draft code of ethics, in particular its sections on organizational ethics and international concerns. The ethical obligations of organizations are generally overlooked in most codes of conduct, perhaps because these codes are written from the perspective of each member. This dilemma is addressed by explaining these imperatives from the point of view of the organization`s leader. In this context, the “guide” is considered any member of the organization who has leadership or education functions. These imperatives can generally apply to organizations and their leaders. In this context, “organizations” are businesses, government authorities and other “employers,” as well as voluntary professional organizations. We do not know the details of Diane`s contract, but she may have to choose between her contract and her obligation to respect privacy and confidentiality. If this is not the case, Diane will have to take into account her contractual obligations, as indicated in Need Zone 2.6, when fulfilling the assigned responsibilities. As a leader in his organization, the president also violates 3.1 because he does not encourage his employees to assume their social responsibility. Violation of copyrights, patents, trade secrets and licensing agreement terms is, in most cases, prohibited by law. Even if software is not as protected, these violations are contrary to professional behavior. Software copies should only be created with appropriate permission.
Illegal reproduction of materials should not be tolerated. This ethical requirement broadens the principle of ownership (1.5), which explicitly mentions copyright, patents, trade secrets and licensing agreements. These restrictions are based on integrity (1.3) and the need to comply with existing laws (2.3). These principles may be contrary to a worker`s agreements and obligations to the employer and the client. The principle of honesty covers matters of confidentiality of information when an explicit promise has been made to respect confidentiality or implicitly when private information that is not directly related to the performance of its own obligations becomes available. Ethical concern is to respect all confidentiality obligations to employers, customers and users, unless they are exempted from these obligations under the law or other principles of this Code. The ethical imperatives of the code imply that Jane should not provide a system that she considers inferior and should not mislead the customer about the quality of the product (1.3).
