Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Consulting in Minnetonka
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs). Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complicated activity that calls for a mix of field experience, technical skills and business acumen. It also requires working closely with the ransomware victim's IT team and the insurance provider, if there is one. Since the top priority of the ransomware target is fast recovery, it is critical to deploy response groups that operate efficiently, in parallel, and with intimate collaboration. Progent offers the scope of technical skills and the deep bench of experts to complement your IT support team and recover your network environment quickly and affordably.
Support offered by Progent's ransomware settlement negotiation experts include:
In addition to extorting payment for a decryption utility, current strains of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, DopplePaymer, and Egregor often attempt to exfiltrate information. TAs can then require an extra settlement in exchange for not publishing this information on the dark web. Unfortunately, there exists no way to be certain that stolen files have been completely deleted by the TA. Actually, in many instances the threat actor has little say over where the information ends up. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of getting the advice of privacy attorneys, conducting an investigation into which data were taken, and sending the necessary alerts to impacted entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
