Moderator: Ron Krawitz Max Bramble: Ransomware, What is it and how to prevent it Ransomware has become a major issue for computer owners. At this very moment, someone is clicking a link in an email or opening a malicious document. In a few seconds, all their data will be encrypted and they’ll have just a few days to pay hundreds of dollars to get it back - if they get it back (when you pay the ransom, you count on the integrity of the person who provided the ransomware) - unless you have a backup and know how to recover your data. Matt Gallagher: Portable Device Gyroscopes This talk will explain the workings of the gyroscopes found on electronic devices; how they work, and how they can be used to improve mobile and console gaming.
