SIGNIFICANCE RELIABILITY: The operation of hardware, the design of software, the accuracy of data or the correspondence of data with the real world. Data is not as useful if entered incorrectly or if it becomes outdated. Reliabilty and Integrity INTEGRITY: Refers to the correspondence of data with itself at its creation. Refers to the protection of hardware, software, machines, and networks from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. SECURITY The ability of individuals and groups to determine for themselves when, how, and to what extent the information about themselves is shared with others. PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY Includes ideas, discoveries, writings, works of art, software, collections and presentations of data. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY Refers to the establishment of the user's identity beyond reasonable doubt.

Standards and protocols are technical rules and conventions that enable compatibility and therefore facilitate communication or interoperability between different IT systems and their components. They might govern the design and use of hardware, software and information. For example, the communication protocols used on the internet, the ASCII representations for characters, or the design of the printer port on a personal computer are all governed by standards. STANDARD AND PROTOCOL The interaction of humans with information technology hardware raises all the issues encountered in the social and ethical issues section, as well as additional ones PEOPLE AND MACHINES Digital citizenship can be defined as appropriate behaviour that represents the responsible, ethical
