The rapid advancement of information technology in modern societies affects the way we live, communicate, work, and entertain.nbsp; nbsp;nbsp;Computers and computer networks formulate an information age in which nbsp; nbsp;traditional ethical questions are reexamined and new questions arise concerning moral standards for human behavior.nbsp; Computer Ethics: A Global Perspective presents a clear and concise introduction to the ethical and social issues sparked by our ever-growing information society at the local and global level. Designed for use as a main text in undergraduate and graduate courses that focus on computer, business, and applied ethics, the text is also ideal for the Information Technology in a Global Society course for the International Baccalaureate diploma. The textnbsp;considers the impact of digitized information on individuals and societies and includes discussions on privacy, reliability, security, intellectual property, control, equality of access, and authenticity, with insights from the scientists and philosophers who have attempted to evaluate, explain, and resolve these issues. The text also discusses the social impact of information technology in different areas of human life such as business, health, education, entertainment and politics. nbsp;
