The FBI recommends that you pay up if hackers infect your computer with ransomware

The FBI recommends that you pay up if hackers infect your computer with ransomware | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
Always back up the content on your computer. If you back up, verify, and maintain offline copies of your personal and application data, ransomware scams will have limited impact on you. If you are targeted, instead of worrying about paying a ransom to get your data back, you can simply have your system wiped clean and then reload your files.

back up, back up, back up...   back up

Cindy Flores's curator insight, September 29, 10:11 PM
I came across this article that spoke on the subject: clean water. The creator of the machine Marco Attisani is an Italian entrepreneur, which he is hoping for developmental challenges such as clean water, electricity, and internet connectivity to be able to reach Africa. Marco states that one machine can purify up to 3 million liters of water a year and has a life span of 15 years, as well as, creating a Wi-Fi zone with a radius of up to 500 meters. In 2013, the first prototype was initially set up in the village of Abenta in Ghana to test the human impact. However, they did not use evidence to support the statements of the measurements Marco stated previously, meaning, that the statements may, in fact, be untrue. In the article, Soumonnia, an innovation scholar at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, stated that unless the technology has been used it is considered a nonsuccessful innovation. This article does not have any supporting evidence but the author did make the article convincing enough for us to be able to belive the machine will work for those who will be dependent on the machine. The authors seemed neutral about the topic; it provided measurements without evidence but it provided several points of view  (investments, Marco results, and a statement of Soumonnia) instead of just one.
