week 10 discussion 1 quot privacy challenges quot
“Privacy Challenges” Please respond to the following:
- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) threatened to shut off BlackBerry messaging, email and web browsing services if the deviceâ€™ s maker, Research in Motion (RIM), did not provide certain information necessary for national security. RIM was caught between not disclosing confidential information and not endangering UAEâ€™s national security. Give your opinion on whether RIM should have given in to UAEâ€™s demands or whether it should have protected the confidential information. Support your position.
- Imagine you are a mid-level manager working for a well-known international organization and have invested $10,000 in the organization stock, along with contributions to the 401k benefit. Suppose you have indisputable evidence that the CEO was manipulating the companyâ€™s stock price. Determine if you would inform the stakeholders or refrain from saying anything for fear of causing the stock to plunge. Support your position.
