Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Brooklyn
Progent is experienced in negotiating ransomware settlements with hackers. Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complex activity that requires a mix of field experience, IT skills and business acumen. It also calls for close co-operation with the cyber-extortion target's IT team and the cyber insurance provider, if there is one. Because the top goal of the ransomware target is fast recovery, it is critical to deploy response teams that work effectively, concurrently, and in close communication. Progent offers the scope of technical skills and the deep bench of experts to supplement your IT staff and restore your network environment quickly and economically.

Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting payment for a decryption utility, modern variants of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, DopplePaymer, and Egregor commonly attempt to exfiltrate files. TAs can then demand an additional settlement in exchange for not publishing this data or selling it. Unfortunately, there exists no method to be certain that stolen files have been totally erased by the threat actor. Actually, in numerous cases the hacker has limited control about where the information ends up. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for seeking the advice of privacy lawyers, conducting an inventory of files were compromised, and carrying out the required notifications to affected entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
