Overview of Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Services in Plano
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors. Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complex exercise that calls for a mix of real-word experience, IT skills and business acumen. It also requires close co-operation with the ransomware victim's IT team and the cyber insurance carrier, if any. Since the top priority of the ransomware target is fast recovery, it is vital to deploy recovery teams that operate effectively, in parallel, and in close communication. Progent offers the scope of IT knowledge and the depth of experts to complement your network support team and restore your network rapidly and affordably.
Support offered by Progent's ransomware settlement negotiation team include:
Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
Beyond demanding money for a decryption tool, current variants of ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, DopplePaymer, and Egregor often attempt to exfiltrate files. TAs are then able to demand a separate ransom in exchange for not posting this information or selling it. Sadly, there exists no method to prove that stolen data have been totally deleted by the TA. Actually, in many instances the hacker has limited say about the disposition of the data. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for getting the advice of privacy lawyers, performing an audit on which files were stolen, and carrying out the required notifications to impacted entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
