Adhering to professional ethical conduct is a defining aspect of any profession, including in ICT. CEPIS is committed to develop a more consistent approach to ethics among the ICT profession:
- CEPIS created an Ethics Repository acting as a reference point to enable a long-term assessment of commonalities among Codes of Ethics, Codes of Conduct, and Codes of Practice.
- CEPIS is curating a collection of articles that explore ethical issues in IT from different angles. The objective is to raise awareness on the ethical questions raised by recent developments in ICT, ranging from social media to self-driving cars.
- CEPIS has organised Ethics Conferences, in Brussels in 2014 and in The Hague in 2015, to discuss how ICT practitioners should address ethical considerations related to their profession.
