"A recommended read for all IT professionals and a must read for those in management."—Tom Molnar, business systems analyst

"The combination of practicality, ease of implementation, and positive return on investment is what makes this book work so well. The easy-to-implement action steps makes dealing with these ten social responsibilities something that is almost as easy as buckling your seat belt when you get into an automobile."—Brandon L. Harris, educator and author

Socially Responsible IT Management shows IT professionals how to overcome the social crisis that has resulted from the wide-spread use of information technology. By responsibly managing security threats, protecting individual privacy, reducing hazardous waste, and minimizing other negative effects on IT staff and computer users, as well as ordinary citizens around the world, IT professionals can benefit the society at large and reap rewards for their own organizations as well.

Scandals at Enron, Andersen, Sotheby's and Christie's, Merrill Lynch, and Tyco are fueling a crisis of confidence in business. Regulators, voters, investors, customers, and employees are demanding that businesses be more socially responsible. Rhetoric is not enough, all organizations need to demonstrate that they are living up to social expectations. Erbschloe shows managers how to take charge of key aspects of their IT operations and follow a morally, ethically, and legally correct path to success.
