AbstractRansomware is the new malware which has fascinated public with innovative form of attacks. The Ransomware not only attacks the systems and makes them inaccessible, it also demands certain ransom payments from the victims. There are numerous instances of Ransomware such as Cryptolocker, Reveton, CryptoWall, Fusob etc. The Ransomware may be broadly classified as Encrypting, Non-Encrypting, Leakware and Mobile. Most prominent ransomware such as Cryptolocker, uses public key cryptography to encrypt the infected machine’s data. For decrypting the files, the Ransomware may demand money/cryptocurrency from the victim. In this presentation, after giving an overview of the Ransomware attacks with case studies, we discuss new development in attacks and countermeasures in detail. We explore the emerging threats and new challenges from Ransomware.

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to physical objects embedded with sensors and actuators that are connected to the Internet. Some examples include wearables such as fitness devices that can track users’ activities; smart home products; and smart cities with intelligent traffic management that are armed with sensors in roads and vehicles. It is estimated that Internet-connected devices will reach one trillion by 2025. These connected devices produce huge volumes of data, which creates opportunities and legal challenges at the same time.
The key legal issue to consider in respect of “things”/connected devices when supplying to consumers is compliance with the data protection regulatory framework. Data protection law in the EU is set to change in the next year with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applying in all member states from 25 May 2018. The GDPR came into force on 24 May 2016 with a 2 year transition period. The GDPR will introduce developments to a number of areas of EU data protection law that are likely to have a direct impact on the way device manufacturers, application developers, social platforms and other entities involved in the IOT field design, devise and bring to market IOT-based devices, systems and applications. Accordingly, this paper seeks to address and analyse the legal challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT) taking the European Union (EU) as a case study.
