If anything ....
Lack of solid, tested backup and restore protocols.  I have argued for some time that encrypted files on workstation or server are the functional same as a drive crash or OS failure.  Workstations generally far easier to restore, local backup of data less so as rules change all over the place.  SERVERS should have reliable, tested plans for data restoration IF drives or infrastructure fails.  Ransomware is thus EASY to defeat.  WHY go so crazy?  Because many firms DO NOT have these plans in place.  Thus, IT staff works 24/7 for 2 weeks not knowing what they are doing at 2 am.  Sad.
