Integrity - use of values or principles to guide action in the situation at hand.

Below are links and discussion related to the values of freedom, hope, trust, privacy, responsibility, safety, and well-being, within business and government situations arising in the areas of security, privacy, technology, corporate governance, sustainability, and CSR.

E-mail's privacy problem, 30.8.04


The revelation in June that 13 Toronto-area articling students collaborated via e-mail to cheat on their bar admissions course are just the latest example of how the e-mail messages we send to each other can come back to haunt us.

Comments on integrity seem almost superfluous here! [JCW]


  Email and other Internet-protocol based communication media (such as ftp, telnet, and various messenger-style applications) are inherently insecure. They were never designed otherwise. Each of these technologies has many a secure correlate (seure email clients, secure ftp, ssh2, and surely a secure messenger client or two). We need to begin using these by default.

In corporate and government use, these tools need to facilitate second level access to all encrypted files including emails. Access is required by a system administrator, in cases where the organization requires access to the encrypted data. In most countries, it is the organization which owns the content, not the employee.

Parents, guardians, and teachers may have the same requirement.

"We shall need compromises in the days ahead, to be sure. But these will be, or should be, compromises of issues, not principles. We can compromise our political positions, but not ourselves. We can resolve the clash of interests without conceding our ideals. And even the necessity for the right kind of compromise does not eliminate the need for those idealists and reformers who keep our compromises moving ahead, who prevent all political situations from meeting the description supplied by Shaw: "smirched with compromise, rotted with opportunism, mildewed by expedience, stretched out of shape with wirepulling and putrefied with permeation.
Compromise need not mean cowardice. .."

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"
