Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Consulting in Virginia Beach
Progent is experienced in negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Reaching an optimum settlement is a complex activity that requires a mix of real-word experience, technical knowledge and business savvy. It also calls for close co-operation with the cyber-extortion target's IT staff and the cyber insurance carrier, if any. Because the number one goal of the ransomware target is fast recovery, it is vital to establish recovery teams that operate efficiently, in parallel, and in close communication. Progent has the scope of IT skills and the deep bench of experts to supplement your network staff and restore your network environment rapidly and affordably.
Support provided by Progent's ransomware settlement experts include:
Beyond extorting payment for a decryption utility, current variants of ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Netwalker, and Nephilim often try to steal (or "exfiltrate") information. TAs can then require an extra ransom for not posting this information on the dark web. Unfortunately, there is no method to prove that stolen files have been completely erased by the TA. In fact, in many cases the TA has limited control about who can access the stolen files. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of engaging the advice of legal counsel, performing an investigation into which data were taken, and sending the mandated notifications to affected entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
