Dan, Brian, and Erik find themselves debating whether or not the new up-to-$10M reward for information regarding ransomware and other attacks will make a material difference in the upward trend in technology as a weapon.

  • What are some non-technical examples of ransomware (hint: it involves warm weather islands and boats and flags with skulls)
  • How will the new ransomware bounty work? Will it work at all?
  • Who sets the definition of "minimum viable security?" Who should and who can set that definition?
  • Can we get beyond human nature to take advantage of a situation that is beneficial to them?
  • What other economic impacts take place if we can eliminate bad actors (other than a lot of out-of-work security practitioners?)
