You work for a local company that sells and manages data security for small businesses in Minnesota and Wisconsin. This company sells security software, hardware encryption, and hosts secure servers for Internet transactions. Your company also stores customer data including TAX-ID numbers and bank accounts. As your company grows and tries to compete with the larger companies like IBM or Microsoft, your boss asks you to discover new ways of generating business. One idea you have is that you could go through the data of your small business customers and find out who they conduct business with such as other companies or even consumers like you or me. Once you identify these potential new customers, you could then market your services to them. You also don't think you need to notify your existing business customers since you are already protecting their data and housing all of their information
Ethically, is the idea fine or wrong? What is fine with it and/or what is ethically wrong with your idea? Explain in detail.
