ETHICAL PERSPECTIVES IN INFORMATION SECURITY EDUCATION

By 

Abstract

This paper relates the similarities between the deviations in moral behavior illustrated in the famous 1971 Zimbardo prison study with the behavior of deindividualized technologically savvy students in an anonymous environment such as the Internet. Suggestions are made to improve moral sensitivity and judgment through minimizing deindividualization, promoting moral argumentation using ethical scenarios, and establishing well defined ethical boundaries
