Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Services in Manchester
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with hackers. Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complex exercise that requires a mix of real-word experience, technical skills and business acumen. It also demands working closely with the ransomware victim's IT staff and the insurance carrier, if there is one. Because the number one goal of the ransomware target is operational continuity, it is vital to establish recovery teams that work efficiently, concurrently, and with intimate collaboration. Progent offers the breadth of IT knowledge and the deep bench of personnel to complement your IT staff and restore your network environment quickly and affordably.

Beyond demanding money for a decryption utility, modern variants of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Egregor often attempt to exfiltrate files. TAs can then demand an extra payment in exchange for not divulging this data or selling it. Unfortunately, there exists no way to be certain that exfiltrated data have been completely deleted by the threat actor. Actually, in many cases the hacker has little control over data custody. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the need for engaging the advice of privacy lawyers, performing an audit on which data were stolen, and performing the necessary alerts to affected entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
