It's predicted cyber criminals are going to shift towards hacking into our internet-connected gadgets like phones, smart TVs, and even fitness trackers, and disabling access unless we pay up. Government-backed security researchers are warning about the rise of so-called "ransomware" - which is used to lock users out of devices. To find out more about the latest threats Georgie Frost heard from Ben Russell, head of strategy and partnerships at the National Cyber Crime Unit and Chris Dye, VP of marketing at Glasswall.
