“Whistle-blowing is an
effort by an employee to attract attention to a negligent, illegal, unethical,
abusive, or dangerous act by a company that threatens the public interest and
that of the organization. Whistle-blowers often have access to special
information based on their expertise or position within the offending
organization.” (Reynolds, 2012)
the modern technology that is being used in work places promises competitive
advantages to the organization it also increases apprehensions about unethical
information practices by employees who are caught up in an ethical dilemma.
These technologies also makes it much easier to copy and distribute information
among the organization and 3rd parties as IT professionals gain
access to equipment and information to violate intellectual property and
privacy decisions.” (McCallister et al, 2010)
