The last paragraph is key. If you have good backups and good people (contracted or in company) then all will be good (or should be).
I suspect the FBI advice about paying really applies to companies that don't have a good backup system or even one at all. I know of one office that has 10 computers and no backups. They claim all the computers back each other up. The owner thinks he's knows it all and any ransomwear will only stay on one PC. <sigh>
