Overview of Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Sherman Oaks
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs). Negotiating an optimum settlement is a complicated activity that calls for a combination of field experience, IT skills and business acumen. It also requires working closely with the victim's IT team and the cyber insurance provider, if there is one. Because the number one priority of the ransomware victim is operational continuity, it is vital to establish response teams that work effectively, in parallel, and in close communication. Progent has the scope of technical skills and the depth of experts to complement your network support team and restore your network environment quickly and affordably.
Services offered by Progent's ransomware settlement experts include:
Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting money for a decryption tool, modern strains of crypto-ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, DopplePaymer, and Egregor often try to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. TAs can then require an additional payment in exchange for not divulging this information on the dark web. Sadly, there exists no way to guarantee that stolen files have been completely erased by the hacker. In fact, in many cases the TA has little control over where the information ends up. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of engaging the guidance of privacy attorneys, conducting an inventory of data were compromised, and sending the mandated notifications to impacted entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
