Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Phoenix
Progent is experienced in negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs). Negotiating an optimum settlement is a complicated exercise that calls for a mix of real-word experience, IT skills and business savvy. It also demands working closely with the cyber-extortion target's IT team and the cyber insurance carrier, if any. Since the number one goal of the ransomware target is fast recovery, it is critical to establish recovery groups that work efficiently, concurrently, and in close communication. Progent offers the scope of IT skills and the deep bench of experts to supplement your IT staff and recover your network environment quickly and affordably.
Services offered by Progent's ransomware settlement experts include:
Settling Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond extorting payment for a decryption utility, current strains of ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Nephilim commonly attempt to exfiltrate files. TAs can then demand an additional ransom for not divulging this information or selling it. Unfortunately, there exists no way to prove that exfiltrated files have been totally erased by the threat actor. In fact, in many cases the TA has limited control about where the information ends up. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for getting the guidance of privacy attorneys, conducting an audit on which data were taken, and performing the necessary notifications to affected entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
