In the sector of technology Baltzan (2017) articulates that information ethics govern the ethical and moral concerns arising from the progress and usage of information technologies (p. 71). As well Baltzan elucidates that protecting customersâ€™ privacy is among the largest ethical issues that organizations face today. Because of the laws and regulations that are put into place today to protect the collection, duplication, processing, and distributions of consumers, employees, and organizational information, it is critical that the CEO have knowledge and understanding of technology in the area of both ethics and security. Ethics is foundational when establishing, developing, and retaining a productive relationship because it brings respect and trust to the forefront of any relationship. Baltzan notes that trust among companies, customers, partners, as well as suppliers is the support structure of e-business (p. 71).
Another reason it is critical for the CEO to have knowledge and understanding of ethics concerning information technology is the IT hardware, as well as software have become natural products of the cultures of the societies they are developed in. Because of this there is the possibility that the ethical standards of one culture may affect viewers of other cultures (domestic and international trade) in unexpected and sometimes negative ways (
â€œSo whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophetsâ€ (Matthew 7:12 ESV). At some point in peopleâ€™s lives people tend to search the corridors of their own moral principles and the practical implications of such principles. Whether in social, political, religious, or professional perceptions, as humans, we have individual ideologies concerning what principles people should have or by which moral standards people can be justified. As Christians, ethics identify who we are and whose we are. As stated by Baltzan, â€œInformation does not have ethics: people do.â€
