ETHICS IN INFORMATION SECURITY 2
Scenario 1
In the current economy, many businesses have invested heavily in their
information technology systems and infrastructures. Their aim is to protect their investment
against potential lost productivity and illegal actions. Therefore technology has been used to
monitor employee’s behavior and activities. In the scenario of the HVAC Company, ethics were
not compromised especially because it is a fleet company that requires employees to move from
place to place away from the company’s offices. In such a situation it is very difficult to monitor
the employees without a well installed technological infrastructure in the company’s information
system. The main aim of the GPS tracking application is to help the employees locate the
customer’s address and the same time control how they operate within the service area. This
means besides the organizations ensuring that it is effectively meeting its customer target; it also
ensures that all the employees operate within the company’s framework and this means that
ethics are being observed in the company in a legal way without compromising the privacy of the
employees during working hours.
In such a scenario, I believe the application of the GPS has no negative
consequences. This is because the main aim of the organization is to locate as much potential
customers as possible and through use of the technology it makes it easier. It is also time
efficient as the employees can easily locate the customer’s addresses within a short period of
time. When employees are not monitored especially those operating in the field away from the
company’s offices, laxity and involving illegal businesses that are not as per the company’s
framework are likely to be noted but with the GPS monitoring there will be efficiency and
commitment to work as per the regulations and this can only be achieved if the company
operates within an ethical framework (Siegal 2006).
