Abstract

Ethics refers to the principles of right and wrong that individuals, acting as free moral agents, use to make choices to guide their behaviour

Computers cause new ethical problems because they create opportunities for intense social change, and thus threaten existing distributions of power, money, rights, and obligations.

The development of information technology will produce benefits for many, and costs for others When using information systems, it is essential to ask, what is the ethical and socially responsible course of action?

 Computer ethics uses basic ethical principles to help you make the right decisions.

As technology becomes more prevalent in society, computing professionals must ensure that hardware and software are used safely, fairly, and effectively
