Synopsis

On discovering that your team or organisation is creating harmful software what would you do?

The ACM Code of Ethics states that "a computing professional has the obligation to report any signs of systems risks that may result in harm" and that "if leaders do not act [...] it may be necessary to blow the whistle".

This interactive session will explore potential whistleblowing situations in recent media stories and present the findings from my latest research.
