The UK Cyber Security Council’s Ethical Declaration for participating organisations (Member Organisations) is at the heart of the Council’s operations and terms of reference.
Our Ethical Declaration is a set of values and principles, which influence judgement and guides Member Organisations to conduct business honestly and with integrity. It details ethical standards and provides guidance on behaviour and decision-making in difficult situations, particularly where there are conflicting pressures or considerations which need to be reconciled.
The focus areas of the Ethical Declaration are:
Credibility | Integrity | Professionalism
The Council has published its Guiding Principles for Individuals
The Council’s Guiding Principles of Individuals are also provided, to support individuals in conducting themselves in an ethical manner and to help them balance often conflicting interests and demands.
