Should Hollywood Presbyterian have paid the ransom?  Some experts find it troubling; easy for them to say!  Running a hospital is a complicated business, with literal life-or-death decisions to be made.  I don't think you can be too hard on hospital administration for taking a pretty cheap way to fix a problem that could've killed their patients.  Should they have prevented the cyberattack in the first place?  I don't know, and neither does anybody else not using 20/20 hindsight.  But once the data is locked up, paying $17,000 is probably worth it.

UPDATE: More on the debate here.
