Overview of Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Consulting in Madison
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Reaching an acceptable settlement is a complex activity that calls for a combination of real-word experience, technical knowledge and business acumen. It also calls for working closely with the victim's IT team and the insurance carrier, if there is one. Since the number one goal of the ransomware victim is fast recovery, it is vital to establish recovery groups that work efficiently, concurrently, and in close communication. Progent has the scope of technical skills and the deep bench of personnel to complement your IT staff and recover your network rapidly and affordably.

Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond demanding money for a decryption utility, modern strains of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Egregor often try to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. Hackers can then require a separate ransom for not publishing this information or selling it. Sadly, there is no method to guarantee that stolen files have been completely erased by the threat actor. In fact, in numerous cases the TA has limited say about who can access the stolen files. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the need for getting the guidance of privacy attorneys, conducting an investigation into which files were compromised, and carrying out the mandated notifications to affected entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
