Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Webster
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complex activity that requires a combination of field experience, technical knowledge and business savvy. It also calls for working closely with the cyber-extortion target's IT staff and the insurance provider, if any. Since the number one goal of the ransomware victim is operational continuity, it is vital to establish recovery groups that operate efficiently, in parallel, and in close communication. Progent offers the scope of technical knowledge and the depth of experts to complement your IT support team and recover your network quickly and economically.

Settling Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond demanding payment for a decryption utility, current variants of ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, DopplePaymer, and Egregor commonly attempt to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. TAs are then able to require an additional ransom in exchange for not divulging this data on the dark web. Sadly, there is no way to be certain that exfiltrated data have been completely deleted by the TA. In fact, in numerous cases the TA has little say over the disposition of the data. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of engaging the advice of privacy lawyers, performing an audit on which files were stolen, and carrying out the necessary alerts to impacted entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
