>> Hi everybody and welcome back to
00:00
the HCISPP Certification course
00:00
with Cybrary Code of Ethics.
00:00
My name is Charlene Hutchins and I
00:00
will be your instructor for this video.
00:00
Today, we're going to talk about codes of
00:00
ethics for an organization and for ISC squared.
00:00
Now stay tuned. I promise it won't be boring.
00:00
While it is basic information,
00:00
it's part of the exam and there
00:00
will be a few things that stand out.
00:00
Let's do a quick review.
00:00
Every organization that interacts with
00:00
personal information should have a code of ethics.
00:00
A code of ethics describes the behavior
00:00
of the organization as it relates to use,
00:00
care and protection of information,
00:00
as well as how everyone
00:00
will conduct themselves in business matters.
00:00
Many organizations have core values that
00:00
align or that are used as their code of ethics.
00:00
The core values are the behaviors that the employees are
00:00
expected to exhibit when working for the organization.
00:00
The core values for the company I work for are;
00:00
do the right thing,
00:00
be selfless, be yourself,
00:00
embrace challenges, and results matter.
00:00
Underneath each core value is further detail
00:00
on what each means in plain language.
00:00
We even say, we don't tolerate jerks.
00:00
You can't get any plainer than that.
00:00
Living out those core values helps
00:00
employees align with the code of ethics
00:00
and behave in a manner that supports
00:00
the business and its customers and clients.
00:00
All employees should be required to read,
00:00
agree, and sign the code of ethics.
00:00
In doing so, should anyone violate
00:00
the code and behaves unethically,
00:00
such as committing fraud or in today's society,
00:00
posting hateful language or statements out
00:00
on social media that are in
00:00
opposition of the company's values,
00:00
then companies can have
00:00
a legal standing for disciplinary action.
00:00
ISC squared has a code of ethics which
00:00
all members and certificate holders are bound to follow.
00:00
There are four canons in the code that we will cover.
00:00
Here's what the code of ethics for
00:00
ISC squared looks like on the website.
00:00
When you pass your exam,
00:00
if you're not already a member,
00:00
you will be asked to read,
00:00
agree to and sign,
00:00
stating that you will follow this code of ethics.
00:00
Basically, as a professional and a certificate holder,
00:00
you're expected to behave ethically.
00:00
Just don't do bad things.
00:00
A summary of the four canons are;
00:00
protect society, the common good, and the infrastructure.
00:00
Act honestly, responsibly and legally.
00:00
Provide competent service.
00:00
Meaning keep up with your training and
00:00
certification and be diligent.
00:00
Help to advance and protect the profession.
00:00
When you see someone else
00:00
misbehaving and not following the code,
00:00
it's your duty and responsibility to report that.
00:00
Also, use your knowledge and
00:00
skills and abilities to train others,
00:00
write an article, create exams and trainings,
00:00
and support others who are seeking
00:00
to achieve their certification.
00:00
Now for a quick review,
00:00
employees should not be required to read,
00:00
agree to, and sign a code
00:00
of ethics document, true or false?
00:00
[MUSIC] You're right, it is false.
00:00
Employees should be required to read,
00:00
agree to, and sign the code of ethics.
00:00
Next, the first ISC squared canon is to protect society,
00:00
the common good, necessary
00:00
public trust and confidence, and the?
00:00
[MUSIC] Infrastructure.
00:00
Yes. You got it.
00:00
One more. The fourth ISC
00:00
squared canon is to advance and protect the?
00:00
[MUSIC] Wait for it, the profession.
00:00
Absolutely. Today,
00:00
we talked about code of ethics
00:00
and the ISC squared code of ethics,
00:00
making sure we all do the right thing.
00:00
Thanks for tuning in,
00:00
and I'll see you in the next video.
