Additionally, consider Colossians 1:10 (ESV), “So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God,” and the Christian worldview when formulating your ideas. Think about and include discussion of how this scripture and the principles associated with the Christian worldview support and encourage the legal and ethical use and presentation of data.
Provide specific examples of two ethical dilemmas you might encounter as a data analyst, and explain how you would address each dilemma. In your discussion, address the needs of the customer and the business and specific ways to reconcile the needs of each group when the two conflict.
