The Precautionary Principle in a World of Digital Dependencies

Wolter Pieters, A. van Cleeff

Abstract

As organizations become deperimeterized, a new paradigm in software engineering ethics becomes necessary. We can no longer rely on an ethics of consequences, but might instead rely on the precautionary principle, which lets software engineers focus on creating a more extensive moral framework.
