The sensitive nature of information security demands that ethical stun approach is given to the handling of personal data information. It is always critical to emphasize on ethical values to safeguard the integrity of information on the observing personal privacy. However, many people have been subjected to unethical practices either demanded by their professions or ignorantly (Ulltveit-Moe, 2014). The primary concerns of such practices are the dangers they expose these people to and the levels of vulnerabilities they become susceptible. There are obvious dangers that unethical behavior such as exposing personal information can lead.
The discussion attempts to unearth the unethical mannerism that military personnel face concerning information security. According to the discussion, the discussant asserts the professional requirement for disclosure of all personal information in the military. It can be detrimental to have such high levels of exposure in modern days due to the volatility of information security (Ulltveit-Moe, 2014). Such information can be used to harm others without their awareness. The discussant further denotes the need for companies handling personal information to entitle their clients to information audit such as credit monitoring and consumer reports within specified periods to determine the safety of their personal information.
Though it is important to reveal full information in individual organizations and industries, the levels of disclosure should be moderated and their virtual security guaranteed so that the privacy of the owners is not infringed (Martin, 2012). Ethical considerations should also be brought to perspective in the corporate sectors while determining the kind and nature of information customers should disclose. Moreover, the disclosure should be bound by proper ethical policies that protect information from internal pilferage. Handling of customer information by employees should equally be monitored to ensure they online handle right information. The companies should as well develop and implement proper dismissal policies to ensure disgruntled employees do not unleash malice to customer information. Employees are often critical to the security and privacy of clients’ personal information (Martin, 2012). However, numerous challenges can cause disgruntlement to the employees leading to them relinquishing their services. Under such circumstances, they are a serious threat to information security thus the need for proper dismissal policies to curb any potential danger.
