Innovative technology is the new trend among IT professionals. It has opened new avenues of opportunities for businesses, and in some cases a severe threat to ethical norms. In this article at ISACA, Guy Pearce defines ethics in IT as a medium to maintain compliance without violating human values and interests.
Deployment of Ethical Technology
Indeed, ethics are as crucial to IT firms as the other domains of enterprise governance of IT (EGIT). Following the rigorous legislation imposed by the European Union (EU) as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), data privacy remains crucial.

With automation taking a front seat to reduce human error, governance remains a matter of concern. Following IT ethics, along with innovative technology, secures the domains of IT enterprise governance.
Alertness Through Education

Awareness can bring apparent transformation. So, initiate regular educational seminars and training sessions to update your team about possible threats and breaches.
