Cambridge Analytica, Facebook, YouTube, Equifax, the US Office of Personnel Management, fake news, ransomware… a faulty moral compass for technology decisions costs organizations much money and reputation. Join Dr. Pablo Molina in exploring important ethical issues when using information technology personally and professionally, including codes of conduct, privacy, security, intellectual property, governance, inclusiveness, diversity, and laws and regulations.
