Innovative technology is the new trend among IT professionals. It has opened new avenues of opportunities for businesses, as well as a potentially 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 they are to 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.
Many countries have aligned their privacy regulations with GDPR. Some organizations consider it a burden, while others consider it a vital need to maintain data security.
With automation taking the front seat to reduce human error, governance remains a matter of concern. IT ethics along with innovative technology secure the domains of enterprise governance of IT.
Alertness Through Education
Awareness and training of IT professionals can serve as a guide for the future. Any organization can monitor and maintain ethical norms with the support of its skilled staff. Awareness can bring transformation. So, initiate regular educational seminars and training sessions to update your team about possible threats and breaches.
Organizations must focus on practicing governance compliance. Data security is an ethical practice critical for company growth.
