Confidentiality and Technology: Ethical Considerations

12pm – 1pm | June 19, 2019

Technology provides a wide variety of ways to engage with our clients and makes it easier to gather and store information. As coaches it is our responsibility to ensure that confidential information gathered from our clients is secured. Not only is technology making it easier to communicate with our clients and gather information, it leaves those same communications and records vulnerable to being accessed by others.


  1. Overview of the ICF Code of Ethics and how it applies to technology
  2. Understand how the use of technology can impact confidentiality
  3. Learn basic practices that help ensure confidentiality
