Overview

This thoroughly revised and expanded fourth edition of the successful Ethical and Social Issues in the Information Age provides an up-to-date examination of the ethical, social, and policy challenges stemming from the emergence of cyberspace, the convergence of telecommunication and computing technologies, and the miniaturization of computing, telecommunication, and information-enabling devices. This accessible textbook/reference broadly surveys thought-provoking questions about the impact of these new technologies, with particular emphasis on the rapid growth of a multitude of computer networks, including the Internet. It assumes only a very modest familiarity with basic computer literacy. Students at all levels who need to learn about computer ethics, the legal aspects of computing, network security, computer crime investigation, and biometrics will find this well-documented work an invaluable resource. The book is also highly useful for practitioners needing such insights for their work.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the third edition:

"It is encouraging to encounter a textbook for undergraduate students that is devoted to information age ethics ... . This third edition contains three new chapters. ... I appreciate Kizza's work in the ethical education of information technology (IT) students. ... Overall, I recommend this very basic ... but significant educational topic as an introductory text." (Brad Reid, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2008)

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

“It could work in a computers and society course for students majoring in information technology or in a general education computers and society course for students with other majors. … Companies that have a serious and ongoing commitment to ethical and privacy issues might use the book as a reference. … I recommend this book to those who develop computer and business ethics coursework; it is as good as any other option available.” (J. Fendrich, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2010)
