Abstract

Examines the standards of ethical belief and ethical behavior of managers using information technology for decision making in Hong Kong. Proposes that a way of maintaining higher standards of ethics in IT practice is by adopting codes of conduct. Uses the seven ethical codes of the Institute for Certification of Computer Professionals (ICCP) as the measurement tool. These seven codes are accountability, conflict of interest, disclosure, integrity, personal conduct, protection of privacy, and social responsibility. Presents the results of a questionnaire survey of managers belonging to an IT Management Club of a computer society in Hong Kong. Concludes that the seven codes are adequate indicators for measuring ethical standards for managers.
