AbstractThis article discusses the similarities and differences in professional codes of ethics offered by individual organizations related to information systems professionals. Many of the precepts in these codes are similar, but some are not. This article presents the principles of five codes: three U.S. codes, the Canadian code, and the British code, and suggests that the profession should adopt a single, coherent, international code of ethics for the information systems community.
