Several of the cases and readings in this class address issues of ethics, social responsibility, etc. For example: Zero Tolerance - proper way to dismiss employees who violate security policies. Hackers Blackmail - should an executive pay hackers "ransom" to get back the system? Google and Internet privacy - ethical issues about privacy. iPremier - what should a company disclose about a security incident. In addition, some of the readings explicitly deal with ethical issues, such as the Culnan & Williams article (class 9).
