Critical Thinking: Security Policies

The policies that organizations put in place are similar to laws in that they are directives for how to act properly. Like laws, policies should be impartial and fair, and are often founded on ethical and moral belief systems of the people who create them. In some cases, especially when organizations expand into foreign countries, they experience a form of culture shock when the laws of their new host country conflict with their internal policies.

Suppose that SLS Corporation has expanded its operations into your country. Setting aside any legal requirements that SLS make to its policies to conform to your local laws, does SLS have an ethical imperative to modify its policies to better meet the needs of its stakeholders and their geographical region/country?
