Abstract

In this chapter, we examine three frameworks or models that could be used in developing codes of information ethics and then review two codes of information ethics for IST professionals and three codes of ethics or conduct for corporations based on their fit with these three frameworks. Based on our review, we make recommendations that call for a unified code of information ethics based on standardized language and for the possible certification of these codes by professional associations. We also call for stronger language regarding penalties for violations of codes of information ethics.
