And if .....
Suppose .... A server failed or data center went offline, you cannot pay ransom to recover that event.  So what to do?  Gee, isn't that what a recovery and backup plan is supposed to do?????  And what is any damn different from a ransom attack to a failed RU-42 rack full of servers?   Except exfiltration of data = NOTHING.   So give up people and just have a back account set aside for ransom and heaven forbid planning for any other eventuality.  The only one thing IT needs to worry about -ever- is a ransomware attack and otherwise things never, ever go down ..... right?

To pay, or not to pay.
The difference is, we know any payment will be used to commit further crimes, in particular, "real world" crimes like drug manufacturing, people trafficking etc. Plus any payment inspires other criminals to follow suit. https://www.bromium.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Into-the-Web-of-Profit_Bromium.pdf
