Ethics for the Oracle DBA

Do DBAs have a social or ethical responsibility to the organizations they work for?

The role of a database administrator has changed according to the technology of database management systems (DBMSs) as well as the needs of the owners of the databases. For example, although logical and physical database designs are traditionally the duties of a database analyst or database designer, a DBA may be tasked to perform those duties.

Why we need a code of ethics:
System Administrators (SAs) and DBAs generally have high levels of access into computer systems at major corporations, financial institutions, educational facilities and brokerage firms. The IT professionals have access to highly-confidential information, prior to it becoming public knowledge, such as IPOs, stock ratings, debt ratings, test questions and answers just to name a few.
