Part 2

Assessment Instructions

Privacy and confidentiality are constantly being challenged and in some cases, taken away. Surveillance cameras are everywhere, and the NSA makes bulk collections of all calls, emails, and faxes. Is this an ethical concern or government overreach in response to terrorism? In this Assignment, you are going to explore whether these are isolated occurrences in society or a common pattern that will continue to evolve in the coming years.

Using your favorite search engine, research and review a situation or event where confidentiality and ethics were the primary concerns. Explore specifics on what was protected and how it was revealed including ethical violations. Indicate whether training or acknowledgement was known to all involved before the ethical concern occurred. An alternative assignment can be to research an event where both privacy and confidentiality were violated due to ethical concerns. Summarize your findings in a 3-4 page paper. Use APA formatting and cite your resources.
