Abstract:

"There are very few spheres of life where computers and computing technologies have no impact. Homes, hospitals, transport systems and entertainment join businesses and organisations in depending on robust, reliable and secure software systems. It is therefore vital that people who will work on future IT developments have the opportunity to understand the ramifications of building such technologies - particularly from a viewpoint of the social consequences new systems and applications may have and the way in which they can affect personal freedom and privacy." "Ethical, Legal and Professional Issues in Computing reviews many important aspects of this area helping students on computing and IT related degrees to understand the issues and to define their own personal position in relation to ethical matters."--BOOK JACKET.
