Should Garmin pay the ransom?

Paying ransom or not is a moral dilemma in many ways.  On the one hand the business, your customers, and perhaps peoples lives will be impacted if you don't.  On the other hand one also has to assume that you may be paying terrorists, organized crime who may also be engaged in human trafficking or other forms of activity that is endangering lives.   Every organization should have a defined set of principles to guide these decisions focusing on the social responsibilities we should all try to achieve.
