Software engineering Ethics Issues of Professional Responsibility

•Confidentiality
–Engineers should normally respect the confidentiality of their employers or clients irrespective of whether or not a formal confidentiality agreement has been signed.

•Competence
–Engineers should not misrepresent their level of competence. They should not knowingly accept work which is out with their competence.

•Intellectual property rights
–Engineers should be aware of local laws governing the use of intellectual property such as patents, copyright, etc. They should be careful to ensure that the intellectual property of employers and clients is protected.

•Computer misuse
–Software engineers should not use their technical skills to misuse other people’s computers. Computer misuse ranges from relatively trivial (game playing on an employer’s machine, say) to extremely serious (dissemination of viruses).
