Conflicts of interest are situations in which a decision maker must balance personal interests with corporate or organizational interests. Often the conflict is unknown to others involved in or affected by a decision. Examples of conflicts of interest affecting the IT profession are examined and categorized in the areas of self-dealing, accepting benefits, influence peddling, using your employer's property for personal advantage, using confidential information, obtaining outside employment or moonlighting, and taking advantage in post-employment. Further, steps are recommended by which individuals and organizations can reduce the risks attributable to conflicts of interest.
