Working across cultures can be enriching and meaningful. Colleagues can build cross-cultural awareness by engaging with people who are similar to and yet different from them. At the same time, working across cultures also has its challenges. Consider a time when you were exposed to cultural bias or to a case where you needed to take culture into consideration. In this Discussion, you will examine how culture can influence interactions in an organization. To prepare for this Discussion, locate and read resources about cultural worldviews (such as the one in Appendix B of the Information Security Governance course text).
Then narrow your search by focusing on cultural perspectives related to information security. In 350–500 words, share an experience that you have had, or that you read about, where you think someone exceeded the ethical boundaries in applying an IT policy. Address the following in the experience that you have shared: Consider what ethical and cultural considerations you would incorporate in the IT policy of the organization to help guard it against similar breaches. Explain why the considerations are needed and why you think existing IT policies were insufficient in terms of addressing ethical and cultural considerations. Explain how the revised policy will benefit the organization. Support your response with citations from credible sources. Since you may not know all the facts, state any assumptions you make in order to complete the Assignment.
