Paper B1: a matrix mapping of a key IT-related organizational (or personal) ethical issue


concerning privacy.


This assignment gives you an opportunity to analyze a key IT-related organizational (or personal, if not


in the job force) ethical issue, related to privacy subject to relevant laws, regulations, and


policies. Both of the following sites provide sources, and an excellent backdrop for issues relating to


privacy protection and the law.


See EPIC Privacy Issues at: See List on left and/or: EFF Privacy


at [see list in center on this page].


This includes sub-topics discussing information privacy, privacy laws, applications and court rulings (case


law is usually an extension of the basic law based on the facts from specific cases and real-world court


decisions), and key privacy and anonymity issues. While the sites provide many interesting topics, be


sure to focus on our class IT topics.


1. Use the template below and the list of suggested workforce privacy topics from one of the sites


above to produce a matrix to map a key organizational ethical (or personal, if not in the job force) issue


and how this issue is affected by laws, regulations, and policies. Use the list of normative ethics principles


below to help you complete the matrix. Choose any three (only three) of the following list of twelve


(12) principles of normative ethics described below. 2. Prepare the Ethical Issue matrix and include the following explanation (200 words) ?doublespace your narrative?below the matrix:




Why I chose the dilemma;




Why I chose the three principles; and




An analysis of the research used to identify the actions in the matrix.


The completed matrix allows you to weigh the different issues involved and assign a rank as to the


importance of the actions based on the effect on the stakeholders.




2. Submit the matrix for grading to the LEO Assignments Module.


Indicate appropriate APA in-text and source citations for all sources. In addition to critical thinking


and analysis skills, your assignment should reflect appropriate grammar and spelling, good organization,


and proper business-writing style.


This assignment is directly related to Paper-B2. The ethical issue identified in this assignment will


be used in your Paper B2 Assignment. Paper B2 asks you to write a policy that corrects the ethical


issue described in Paper B1.


Normative Ethics List


Autonomy: is the duty to maximize the individual's right to make his or her own decisions.


Beneficence: is the duty to do good both individually and for all.


Confidentiality: is the duty to respect privacy of information and action.


Equality: is the duty to view all people as moral equals.


Finality: is the duty to take action that may override the demands of law, religion, and social customs.


Justice: is the duty to treat all fairly, distributing the risks and benefits equally.


Non-maleficence: is the duty to cause no harm, both individually and for all.


Understanding/Tolerance: is the duty to understand and to accept another viewpoint if reason dictates


doing so is warranted.


Publicity: is the duty to take actions based on ethical standards that must be known and recognized by


all who are involved.


Respect for persons: is the duty to honor others, their rights, and their responsibilities. Showing respect


others implies that we do not treat them as a mere means to our end.


Universality: is the duty to take actions that hold for everyone, regardless of time, place, or people


involved. This concept is similar to the Categorical Imperative.


Veracity: is the duty to tell the truth.

another category you use.

publicity, and veracity.


Step 4: identify how the ethical issue affects each stakeholder based on the principles you identified. Put
