Ransomware is pervasive, annoying, dangerous and expensive. It has even developed a life cycle from a few ill-chosen clicks to a bunch of encrypted files, ending with a desperate payment in Bitcoin to get them back.

Learning Objectives: 1: Learn about coming realities of IoT ransomware. 2: Learn concrete ways to avoid or mitigate IoT ransomware. 3: Understand the value of cross-sector collaboration to combat IoT ransomware.
