Question 3 : Let us know – is there a topic on cyber ethics that wasn’t covered in the course that you think is important to cover in cyber security and awareness ?
Be an ethical digital citizen !
Ethics are the rules of behaviour accepted by society but ultimately reflect the values, attitudes and beliefs of the individual. According to me, digital citizens need to know how to apply ethical behaviour when designing solutions, collaborating and communicating with others thanks to the following information.
What to share
The Internet is the environment where people can share everything they want but clever digital citizens should know what to share because of the impacts. The information we share on the net is very important to people. Good news can make people positive, but bad news can make them negative in life.
How to share
Thanks to useful applications there are many ways to share the information: Text, voice calls, video calls… However, we should decide how to share the information for convenience and politeness. Friendly messages for people at the same age or polite responses with the old are for examples.
Where to share
With the private information we can share with oneself relating to the news to help him find the solutions. With lots of interesting bits of information we can share on social media, Facebook or Zalo to get good influences on people.
When to share
The time we can communicate together through the net is as important as the way. No one is to blame with SOS messages or calls because they are willing to get the latest information. On the contrary, they aren’t pleased to get the calls or messages at the break time or midnight !
The internet has many benefits, from connecting people, to potentially exposing them to diverse opinions, to sharing information to name a few. However, some activities within these platforms can cause harm when the behaviour becomes unethical. Ethical digital citizens should provide advice and social protocols for online behaviour to ensure social media is inclusive and representative for all users. Internet users , especially the adults are required to comply with legal obligations regarding ownership and use of digital materials, and apply practices that protect intellectual property. Ethical perspectives create a contemporary lens for internet users to reflect and critique how they respond to people with differing opinions, particularly in the online environment. Critical evaluation of the solutions digital citizens create and the positive and negative impacts should be parts of the design process for identifying risks to themselves and others.
