Presentation Overview

 A very important part of our professionalism efforts should be discussions about Ethics. There will be a short review of the CIPS Code of Ethics that we have all signed, and a more general discussion about the definition of Ethics and why they require that we have ongoing discussion or at least ongoing thoughts about them.


Donna will present some of her thoughts and questions about specific issues.  How much are we ethically required to tell our clients/ customers?  What impact might ethics have on IT Architecture?  How are IT Ethics different from Business Ethics?  Most importantly, how can CIPS gather such questions and build some consensus about them?
