Reviews and Testimonials

This timely book examines the ethics and security of information, and the social and organisational issues that surround its use. In considering information ethics, the authors examine the ethical problems caused by the open nature of the internet, the digital divide between its users and non-users, and general information access problems on both sides (from ensuring universal access to restricting access of minors to illicit material). The book further examines system security controls and assessment, cryptography and organisational security policies, and is essential reading for anyone interested in these topics or in information ethics and security generally.

– Craig Chatfield, Griffith University, Australia

Each chapter employs a consistent, well-stylized format and is written as an essay that essentially provides an overview of the current status of its topic. For those interested or professionally involved in the study of information ethics, this book will be a current and helpful resource. Recommended.

– CHOICE, Vol. 42, No. 06 (2005)
