Overview of Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Services in Louisville
Progent is experienced in negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complicated activity that requires a mix of field experience, technical knowledge and business savvy. It also calls for working closely with the cyber-extortion target's IT staff and the insurance provider, if any. Since the number one priority of the ransomware target is fast recovery, it is critical to deploy recovery groups that work effectively, in parallel, and in close communication. Progent has the scope of technical knowledge and the deep bench of experts to complement your network staff and recover your network quickly and affordably.

Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to demanding money for a decryption tool, current strains of ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Netwalker, and Nephilim commonly try to exfiltrate files. TAs can then require an extra payment in exchange for not publishing this information on the dark web. Sadly, there is no way to guarantee that exfiltrated files have been completely erased by the hacker. In fact, in numerous cases the hacker has limited say about who can access the stolen files. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the need for engaging the advice of privacy lawyers, conducting an investigation into which data were taken, and carrying out the mandated notifications to affected entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
