Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Kansas City
Progent is experienced in negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs).

Since the top goal of the ransomware target is operational continuity, it is critical to establish response groups that operate efficiently, concurrently, and with intimate collaboration. Progent offers the scope of IT skills and the depth of personnel to complement your IT staff and recover your network rapidly and economically.

In addition to demanding payment for a decryption utility, modern strains of crypto-ransomware like Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Egregor commonly try to exfiltrate information. Hackers can then demand an extra settlement in exchange for not divulging this data on the dark web. Unfortunately, there is no way to be certain that stolen data have been totally erased by the hacker. Actually, in many cases the hacker has limited say over where the information ends up. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the necessity of engaging the guidance of privacy lawyers, conducting an inventory of files were taken, and performing the required alerts to affected entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
