You’ve made it through seven weeks! Everyone is still alive! You’ve received some feedback about your risk analysis so let’s take that feedback, along with your risk analysis from Task 2 and turn it towards looking at ethics, specifically, information technology ethics. We’re not talking dinosaur Skynet here (although that would be fun 😉 but everyday, ordinary ethics that can make the difference between feeling good or bad about yourself when you look in the mirror. One thing to keep in mind is that ethics and regulations or laws are not necessarily the same thing. There are regulations that don’t address ethical concerns and for some ethical concerns there are no regulations at all. Not addressing security concerns is unethical, but there are IT-related ethical issues that go beyond security. So, what you’ve discovered during Task 2 does not cover everything related to ethics.Note: some people use the terms “ethics” and “morality” interchangeably and some draw a distinction – it’s a preference thing as semantically they are the same word: http://theethicsguy.com/2013/06/20/ethics-vs-morality/#more-2635 – the word “ethics” seems to appeal to a broader audience.You’ve learned about digital ethics from the Gartner Field Trips and the Read and Watch sections. Task 4 is straightforward: you need to identify ethical issues, related to information technology, that will affect your Park Area (at least five, but more is better), identify the stakeholders involved, and come up with scenarios for how to deal with these issues. An example ethical issue – not directly related to IT Ethics – might look like this: “Attendance is down. Medallia survey data indicates visitors are bored with the selection of dinosaurs. The corporate office thinks creating a new genetic hybrid dinosaur in the lab would up the ‘wow’ factor and drive attendance numbers up.” Who would the stakeholders be, generally? How would you deal with this issue?Most important, how do you persuade the leadership of your Park Area that paying attention to ethics is worthwhile? If you have a manager who subscribes to the theory that the only ethical responsibility a corporation has is to make money for its shareholders how do you sway such a person into caring about bigger issues of right and wrong?This article from the Ethics Guy might be some good background reading: “3 Obstacles to Doing the Right Thing” http://theethicsguy.com/2013/07/03/3-obstacles-to-doing-the-right-thing/#more-2655What you will be turning in for Task 4, to the Task 4 Discussion Board and the Task 4 Files link:Brainstormed list of IT-related ethical issues your Park Area might have – you should have at least 5.For each IT-related ethical issue, a listing of the general stakeholders involved.A plan for how you will resolve each IT-related ethical issue.A memo (at least 250 words) to the head of your Park Area about why the IT-related ethical issues you’ve identified are essential to address – it’s great if you can appeal to a higher sense of purpose, but feel free to address more real-world concerns such as reputation loss, stock price loss, and revenue loss in general.***Make sure you specify on any documents you turn in what your Park Area is. ***What happens after you turn Task 4 in:In order to have the peer feedback work in a timely fashion and be fair to your fellow students you will need to submit it to the Task 4 discussion board by the end of Week 9; you will receive feedback by the end of Week 11.Failure to submit Task 4 to the Task 4 Discussion Board and Task 4 Files link by the end of Week 9 can result in a zero for the Task 4 assignment.In turn, you will be responsible for peer reviewing other students’ Task 4 submissions.You will also receive feedback from your professor that will allow you to refine Task 4, if necessary.
