Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Consulting in Charleston
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with hackers. Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complex activity that requires a combination of real-word experience, IT knowledge and business acumen. It also calls for working closely with the cyber-extortion target's IT team and the insurance carrier, if there is one. Because the number one goal of the ransomware victim is fast recovery, it is vital to establish response groups that work effectively, in parallel, and with intimate collaboration. Progent has the breadth of IT knowledge and the depth of personnel to supplement your network staff and restore your network rapidly and economically.
Support offered by Progent's ransomware settlement negotiation team include:
Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond demanding money for a decryption tool, current strains of crypto-ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, DopplePaymer, and Egregor often try to exfiltrate information. TAs are then able to demand an additional ransom in exchange for not publishing this data on the dark web. Unfortunately, there is no method to prove that exfiltrated files have been completely deleted by the threat actor. In fact, in many instances the hacker has limited control over where the information ends up. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the need for seeking the guidance of legal counsel, performing an investigation into which data were compromised, and performing the necessary notifications to affected entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
