Paper B1-Privacy-Related Matrix

This assignment gives you an opportunity to analyze a key IT-related organizational ethical issue subject to relevant laws, regulations, and policies. Chapter 4 of your textbook provides an excellent backdrop for issues relating to privacy protection and the law. This includes sub-topics discussing information privacy, privacy laws, applications and court rulings (case law is usually an extension of the basic law), and key privacy and anonymity issues.

 

 

 

Using the template below and the list of suggested topics from Chapter 4, Reynolds text, pp. 132 – 144, produce a matrix mapping a key organizational ethical issue and how this issue is affected by laws, regulations and policies. For example, as our global community expands and as we grow more dependent on non-US clients for e-business over the Internet, we must be aware of policies and governmental/law enforcement actions concerning access to personal data in one or more countries (e.g. the European Union).

 

 

 

Prepare the matrix and submit it to your Assignment Folder on the due date indicated in your Course Syllabus—Course Schedule. This matrix will assist you in outlining key attributes of the law, regulation, and policy(ies), and will be essential for the second-half of this assignment to develop a policy to address the organization’s ethical issue, B2. Indicate appropriate APA reference citations for all sources. In addition to critical thinking and analysis skills, your assignment should reflect appropriate grammar and spelling, good organization, and proper business-writing style.

 

To use the matrix you must choose any three (only three) of the following list of twelve (12) principles of normative ethics:

 

Autonomy: the duty to maximize the individual's right to make his or her own decisions.

 

Beneficence: the duty to do good both individually and for all.

 

Confidentiality: the duty to respect privacy of information and action.

 

Equality: the duty to view all people as moral equals.

 

Finality: the duty to take action that may override the demands of law, religion, and social customs.

 

Justice: the duty to treat all fairly, distributing the risks and benefits equally.

Non-maleficence: the duty to cause no harm, both individually and for all.

Understanding/Tolerance: the duty to understand and to accept other view points if reason dictates doing so is warranted.

 

Publicity: the duty to take actions based on ethical standards that must be known and recognized by all who are involved.

 

Respect for persons: the duty to honor others, their rights, and their responsibilities. Showing respect others implies that we do not treat them as a mere means to our end.

 

Universality: the duty to take actions that hold for everyone, regardless of time, place, or people involved. This concept is similar to the Categorical Imperative.

 

Veracity: the duty to tell the truth.

 


 

Using the chosen dilemma and the three principles of normative ethics you selected from the above list, complete the ethical matrix.

 

Use the Table Tool in MS Word (or copy and paste this format) to develop the following ethical matrix:


























Ethical dilemma:


Stakeholders


1


2


3


4

 

Step 1: Identify the ethical dilemma based on one of the broad categories identified. An example (following here) might be to falsify your personal profile in a social networking site.

 

Step 2: Identify the stakeholders involved. You, someone who reads your personal profile in a social network site, potential employers, etc.

 

Step 3: Choose any three of the principles that might apply such as autonomy, publicity, and veracity.

 

Step 4: identify how the dilemma affect each stakeholder based on the principles you identified. Put this statement in the matrix next to the stakeholder.

 

For example:






































Ethical dilemma: falsifying your profile on a social networking site


Stakeholders


autonomy


Publicity


veracity


1: You


You have the duty to maximize the right to make your own decisions.


You have the duty to take actions based on ethical standards that must be known and recognized by all who are involved.


You have the duty to tell the truth


2:Other users of the networking site


They have the duty to make their own decisions


They make these decisions based on ethical standards that should be recognized by the person falsifying their profile


They assume that the person falsifying the profile has the duty to tell the truth.


3: The social networking site


The autonomy of the site is limited by law (Goldman, 2007)


Users of social networking sites are content publishers, as such the site must take actions based on legal and ethical standards and must notify users of these standards so they are known by all.


As providers of content the site must conform to the laws regarding truth or be held responsible for legal issues as defamation (making harmful false statements about someone else) or copyright infringement. (Goldman, 2007)

The completed matrix allows you to weigh the different issues involved and assign a rank as to the importance of the actions based on the effect on the stakeholders. Submit the matrix for grading in your Assignments Folder. Include the following explanation below the matrix:

 

1) why I chose the dilemma;

 

2) why I chose the three principles; and

 

3) an analysis of the research used to identify the actions in the matrix.
