The past month has seen several references and allegations around potentially unethical behaviour on the part of ICT systems solutions providers and administrators. It is unfortunate that the actions of a few can potentially tarnish the image of the many professionals who work tirelessly, professionally and ethically across the country. Worse, unethical or unprofessional conduct can negatively impact individuals, businesses and entire economies, and could cost people their lives.
As the voice of the ICT sector and the champion of ICT professionalism in South Africa, IITPSA has issued statements on these matters. We continue striving to bring home the importance of ethical conduct among our members and the broader ICT sector.
Underscoring the professionalism and credibility of our members, IITPSA’s Privyseal digital badging is free to all members in good standing and easy to add to your email signature, so please remember to get yours.
The Institute has been given the opportunity to provide input on which ICT skills are seen as critical going forward, noting that the latest proposal sees a list that has been drastically reduced for Critical Skills Visa purposes. If you have any comment or input on critical ICT skills, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 26 April 2019
