A new paper from the British Computer Society calls attention to the ethical dilemmas of IT.

NetworkWorld: A new paper from the British Computer Society (BCS), says that IT needs to seek ethical guidance from management before beginning new projects. The paper points out that new IT systems and procedures can change the way an entire company does business, bringing up ethical questions that may have never been considered. For example, the paper brings up an example of the drive for innovation leading to the use of IT systems which have not been fully tested.

"Developments in company's ethical policy should be included in IT operations. Monitoring ethical outcomes of initiatives should be incorporated within company practices and ethical codes, and reviewing processes should be in place," concludes the report.
