Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Carlsbad
Progent is experienced in negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs). Reaching an optimum settlement is a complex activity that requires a combination of field experience, technical knowledge and business acumen. It also demands working closely with the cyber-extortion target's IT staff and the cyber insurance carrier, if there is one. Because the number one goal of the ransomware target is operational continuity, it is vital to deploy recovery groups that work efficiently, in parallel, and with intimate collaboration. Progent has the scope of IT knowledge and the deep bench of experts to supplement your network support team and restore your network environment quickly and affordably.

Settling Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting money for a decryption utility, current strains of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, DopplePaymer, and Nephilim often attempt to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. Hackers can then require an additional payment in exchange for not divulging this data or selling it. Unfortunately, there is no method to prove that stolen files have been completely deleted by the TA. In fact, in many cases the threat actor has little control over where the information ends up. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of engaging the guidance of privacy lawyers, performing an inventory of files were taken, and performing the necessary alerts to affected entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
