The latest edition of this dynamic text provides the most up-to-date, thorough coverage of newsworthy technology developments and their impact on business today. Students examine issues surrounding professional codes of ethics, file sharing, and infringement of intellectual property, security risk assessment, Internet crime, identity theft, employee surveillance, privacy, compliance, social networking, and the ethics of IT corporations.
This book offers an excellent foundation in ethical decision-making for current and future business managers and IT professionals.
