This chapter discusses how information and communications technology (computer systems and data transmission) are used as cyber weapons for criminal purposes. It canvasses a number of legislative policy options for controlling their misuse. It concludes with the view that implementing cyber weapons laws—in the same vein as firearms legislation—would not only help ensure society’s domestic well-being, it would aid national security.
