Overview of Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Consulting in Anchorage
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Negotiating an optimum settlement is a complex activity that calls for a combination of field experience, technical skills and business savvy. It also demands working closely with the victim's IT team and the insurance carrier, if there is one. Because the top priority of the ransomware victim is operational continuity, it is critical to establish recovery groups that operate efficiently, concurrently, and with intimate collaboration. Progent offers the breadth of IT skills and the depth of experts to supplement your network support team and restore your network rapidly and economically.

Settling Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond demanding payment for a decryption tool, current variants of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Netwalker, and Egregor often try to steal (or "exfiltrate") information. Hackers are then able to demand a separate settlement for not divulging this information on the dark web. Sadly, there is no method to prove that stolen files have been totally erased by the hacker. In fact, in numerous instances the threat actor has limited control about data custody. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for getting the advice of legal counsel, conducting an inventory of data were compromised, and sending the necessary notifications to affected entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
