Ethics Tops The New CISSP Exam Outline

Code of Ethics Canons

  • Protect society, the common good, necessary public trust and confidence, and the infrastructure.
  • Act honorably, honestly, justly, responsibly, and legally.
  • Provide diligent and competent service to principals.
  • Advance and protect the profession.

Ethics Complaint Procedures

The following is an excerpt from (ISC)² Code Of Ethics:

  • The Ethics Committee is established by the Board of Directors to hear all ethics complaints and make recommendations to the board.
  • The committee will consider only complaints that specify the canon of our (ISC)² Code of Ethics that has been violated.
  • While any member of the public may complain about a breach of Canons I or II, only principals (those with an employer/contractor relationship with the certificate holder) may complain about violations of Canons III, and only other professionals (those who are certified or licensed as a professional AND also subscribe to a code of ethics) may complain about violations of Canon IV.
  • Complaints will be accepted only from those who claim to be injured by the alleged behavior.
  • All complaints must be in writing. Complaints must be in the form of a sworn affidavit. The committee will not consider allegations in any other form.
  • Where a prima facie case has been made, the Ethics Committee will review and tender a recommendation to the board.
