Digital revolution is taking us into the Information Society so quickly that the entire Information and Communication Technology (ICT) world has no time to reflect on new social and ethical issues. In particular this dramatic change put computer professionals in a position full of opportunities but also with new responsibilities. Computer professionals and Information Systems managers have in front of them a "rainbow" of risks and opportunities, they face a collection of ethical dilemmas and social issues that requires a deep reflection and debate among all stakehoders: universities, ICT professional organizations, ICT industry, policy makers, users and society at large. A code of ethics for computer professionals could be a good starting point for defining a collection of guidelines.
