[ The widespread use of information systems does not change ethics in business, ethics are within the individuals operating a business, not the business. Like any system, the information system will have as much integrity as the vast number of people who use it. Like any business tools that have been used over the centuries, those using those tools must be aware of the pitfalls as well as the function. A stone cutter in ancient Egypt could as easily have used his stone cutting tool to stab someone in the back as easily as he used it to cut great blocks out of the stone. Read more: ]
