The ethical issues raised by the spread of electronic communication and computer systems in the modern world are covered through real world examples, with worksheets and homework questions. Legal, as well as ethical, and environmental considerations are covered throughout the unit. Some topics in section 1.5 Ethics of the syllabus including software types and hacking, cracking and malware are covered in greater detail in other units owing to duplication in the specification.
