Transcript of Computer Ethics Zac Rossman

Ethical Issues in Communication Technology By: Zac Rossman Current Trends Facebook Twitter Skype These are three good examples of current trends in communication technology. These websites or applications are used to easily communicate with others, by chatting, playing games, watching videos, and face timing with each other. Although many people misuse these sites and try to take advantage of theme. Certain people may use these sites in an unethical manner, perhaps attempting to hack on another, or try to steal one's identity. This could lead to chaos over the internet world, and might even lead to the shutting down of these websites or apps because of the excessive misuse. Long Range Effects - Long range effects can include a widespread virus spread throughout the internet world, which, would in fact be demoralizing for those who depend on the internet for work or daily uses. - Something like this could certainly cost a load of money just to completely rid of a virus, which is definitely not what the government needs right now. - Hacking and identity theft could lead to the same thing. Identity theft is a crisis that does not happen to many, but severely impacts the lives of the victims. Most people do not successfully steal one's identity without being caught, and either end up in jail or with a large fine. - If these kind of things continue to happen, many people and/or companies may decide to completely rid of computers, perhaps deciding to use other ways of communication and different processes to get things accomplished. Consequences of Unethical Uses The penalties for unethical uses can be quite severe. Pirating a movie can result in one year of prison, and a fine which can go all the way up to $100,000. Identity theft is considered one of the most serious crimes in the country. Nearly ten million Americans are affected by identity theft each year. Years of built up credit can be wiped away in a matter of hours. Penalties for ID theft can range from $50,000 in fines, and 5 years of prison, to a $100,000 fine and 10 years in prison, depending on the state and the seriousness of the felony. Protection A good way to keep any of your accounts safe is to use passwords with as many gadgets possible. This will just keep your password harder to penetrate and hack. Good ways to protect your computer from viruses is to keep your firewall turned on. Firewalls make it harder for hackers to do what they do. Another way is to frequently update your anti virus software. Another useful, easy protection procedure, is to turn your computer off when you use it.
