IT Security improved by Ethical conduct
This article was published on October 6, 2009 by Jaime Chanaga in a security blog targeted for IT executives. A foundation of trust is established, when ethical conduct is exhibited by IT professionals.
Ethics in Cybersecurity
QUOTE: As working professionals in our respective career fields, there should never be a question as to where our moral compass is showing the way. As a management consultant, technology executive, and security professional, one thing has always been clear in my mind—the value of personal ethics in all I do. Have I made my share of mistakes in my career? Absolutely. Have I learned from those mistakes? Yes! Remember that being an ethical person does not guarantee you will not make mistakes.
One of the best lessons I’ve learned is that having clear personal responsibility and ethics your words and actions in the security profession is more important than all of the technical or formal knowledge you acquire in the security profession. Trust your moral compass. Do what is correct, ethical, honest, transparent, and good for your clients, your organization, your community, and our world.
