Ethics is a branch of philosophy that deals with what is considered to be right or wrong. As information in cyberspace can be accessed globally, a research field of "computer ethics" is needed to examine what is right and wrong for Internet users can do, and what are the social impacts of Information Technology (IT) in general. Such research will underpin action that must be taken not only to harness the power of the IT itself, but also to survive its revolution. It is especially important to understand security, privacy issues, and major negative impacts of IT on cyberspace. Although some technical approaches such as: encryption, digital ID, and firewall methods have been developed to overcome some of the problems, legal actions must also be enforced worldwide which will address a growing number of ethical problems resulting from the negative impacts of IT in our global society. As data, information, and computer networks can be threatened by many internal and external hazards internationally, computer ethics should be the concern of everyone. Governments in every country, public policy makers, computer professionals, organizations and private citizens must all take an interest and make their contributions, so that this global information can be exploited in a socially and ethically sensitive way for our future benefit and applications.
