Code of Conduct

Summary

The University of Kansas Information Security Club (KUISC) is dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of any form. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any communication and/or talks. Be kind and do not insult or put down others. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for KUISC. Members and Officers violating these rules should be reported to an Officer immediately. Crimes can be committed with the techniques taught in some of our labs. It is of utmost importance that you do not use any techniques learned on any network that you do have no explicit written permission to do so. These are the values to which people in the KUISC community should aspire:

  • Don't Be Evil
    • Borrowing from Google's old Code, we should all strive to be kind to each other and do not stoop to malice and hate.
  • Be inclusive
  • Be friendly to all
  • Be welcoming to all
    • Encourage each other to do their best.
  • Be patient
    • Remember that people have varying levels of knowledge
  • Be thoughtful
    • Productive communication requires effot. Think about how your words will be interpreted.
  • Be respectful
  • Be responsible
    • Do not use skills learned here without permission from the network owners.
  • Be professional
    • People are complicated. You should expect to be misunderstood and to misunderstand others; when this inevitably occurs, resist the urge to be defensive or assign blame. Try not to take offense where no offense was intended. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Even if the intent was to provoke, do not rise to it. It is the responsibility of all parties to de-escalate conflict when it arises.
