Task

This assignment is designed to enable you to reflect on privacy, security and ethics based on your studies in this subject. You may include personal approaches and feelings on privacy, security and the ethics of some of these approaches.

Consider:

The charity scenario introduced in assignment 4. This assignment looked at the practice of Governments divesting some of their administrative functions to NGOs (Non Government Organisations). This practice often, but not always, includes paying the NGO a sum of money to process and administer clients on behalf of the Government. This assignment saw the NGO process members of society, who they would normally help and support, on behalf of the Government for various support services. This also included identifying the client and assisting them to create a digital ID to access these services.

But, any approach to divestment comes with risks to information security and privacy and may also have an ethical effect.

Tasks:

  1. Discuss what you see as the personal and ethical implications for the privacy of individual clients of an NGO that has adopted the MySupport approach. Will these personal implications lead to possible behavioural changes?(30 marks)
  2. Discuss what you see as the personal and ethical implications for the security of individual clients of an NGO that has adopted the MySupport approach. (30 marks)
  3. Discuss what you would recommend to a client of an NGO that has adopted the MySupport approach in order to protect their individual privacy and the security of their information and digital ID. (40 marks)

Your overall score for this assignment will be scaled out of 10. As a guide, your word limit for this assignment should be around 3,000 words
