Kizza (2014) addressed network attacks and intrusions broadly as “cybercrime” and attributed them largely to moral and ethical deficiencies of the perpetrators. Lessig (2006) approached law in the network largely in terms of computer “code” that defines what can and cannot be done with the network. In other words, Lessig (2006) found the issue of what is a crime and who bears responsibility to be more ambiguous than does Kizza.
Search the Internet to find two examples of activities that meet the definition of cybercrime.
Then briefly summarize your examples and apply and criticize Kizza’s (2014) and Lessig’s (2006) positions on what constitutes a crime and who is responsible for the activities described in your examples. Identify at least two of the stated or unstated assumptions that underlie each of Kizza’s (2014) or Lessig’s (2006) arguments and specify at least two practical implications. Does Kizza’s (2014) or Lessig’s (2006) position apply better to either or both of your examples?
***Discuss and cite both (Kizza’s 2014) Computer Network Security and Cyber Ethics and Lessig’s (2006) Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace) and at least one additional credible, scholarly source to support your analysis and positions.
