As the nation’s unemployed IT professionals become more desperate to get back into the workforce or struggle to secure a job that fits their skills, incidents of cheating on required certification tests are growing, according to a report from Network World.
Network World surveyed 200 IT professionals on IT ethics and found 72 percent of respondents think IT pros use “braindump” materials on a regular-to-frequent basis and 12 percent have directly witnessed someone cheating on a certification exam.
