Overview of Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Midtown Manhattan
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Reaching an optimum settlement is a complex activity that calls for a combination of real-word experience, IT knowledge and business savvy. It also requires working closely with the cyber-extortion target's IT staff and the cyber insurance carrier, if any. Because the number one goal of the ransomware victim is operational continuity, it is vital to deploy response teams that operate effectively, in parallel, and in close communication. Progent has the breadth of technical skills and the deep bench of personnel to complement your network support team and restore your network quickly and affordably.

Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond demanding payment for a decryption utility, modern strains of ransomware like Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Nephilim often attempt to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. TAs are then able to demand a separate ransom for not posting this data on the dark web. Sadly, there exists no way to prove that exfiltrated data have been completely deleted by the TA. In fact, in numerous cases the hacker has little say over the disposition of the data. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for getting the guidance of legal counsel, conducting an investigation into which data were stolen, and carrying out the required notifications to impacted entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
