The French National Pilot Committee for Digital Ethics publishes “Ethics Reflections and warning points on digital ethics issues in situations of acute health crisis”
Especially in a context of cybersecurity and privacy, many of us are on some level concerned with ethic issues that arise from digital technologies. Whereas ethical deliberations typically require a long-term process, in times of crisis immediate ethical issues arise. The French National Pilot Committee for Digital Ethics reflects on ethical issues in time critical situations, such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Besides providing a frame to discuss these issues, it also provides a number of recommendations for specific stakeholder groups that are directly affected by the crisis to deal with them.
