Discussion on: Would you pay a data ransom?

If I had confidence that paying the ransom would help keep the data truly secure and not paying it would result in the opposite, $7,500 is a tiny amount.

Of course, I don't think negotiating a ransom is that straightforward.

I'd think of the $7500 payment as a wager with bad odds, considering there can be no confidence when somebody is blackmailing you.
