|Technology is repeatedly being misused around the world. Whether this is people working for companies like Hacking Team or sys admins at companies like Uber not putting enough protections on their databases, the result is that technologists do, or are asked to do things that are immoral.
Currently there's very little leverage available to and little repercussion for a technologists that goes against basic morality. If instead there was a sort of 'Hippocratic Oath' for hackers/developers/admins not only would there be something you could push back with, but you'd also have a code that you could gauge your actions against.
In this session we'll discuss the need for this type of code, and what should be included in it, and how it should be drafted.
