Progent's Ransomware Negotiation Consulting in Dallas
Ransomware Solutions ExpertsProgent 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 calls for close co-operation with the ransomware victim's IT staff and the cyber insurance provider, if any. Since the number one priority of the ransomware victim is operational continuity, it is vital to deploy response groups that work efficiently, in parallel, and with intimate collaboration. Progent offers the scope of IT knowledge and the depth of experts to supplement your IT support team and recover your network environment rapidly and affordably.

Support available from Progent's ransomware settlement experts include:

  • Establishing the type of ransomware used in the assault
  • identifying and contacting the hacker
  • Assessing the recovery risk
  • Verifying the hacker's decryption capabilities
  • Determining a settlement amount with the ransomware victim and the cyber insurance carrier
  • Negotiating a settlement amount and timeline with the TA
  • Confirming accordance with anti-money laundering (AML) sanctions
  • Overseeing the crypto-currency disbursement to the hacker
  • Receiving, reviewing, and operating the threat actor's decryptor utility
  • If needed, contacting the TA for technical help with the decryptor tool
Concurrent with the ransom negotiations, Progent's ransomware team can help with:
  • Isolating infected endpoints to prevent further spread of the assault
  • Making digital copies of each infected device and data store to allow forensics in parallel with restoration
  • Installing anti-virus protection to all clean endpoints
  • Restoring files from air-gapped backups or uncompromised machines
  • Creating a clean recovery environment
  • Remapping and reconnecting datastores to match precisely their pre-encryption condition
Once the decryption tool has been learned, Progent can assist you to recover machines and services to their pre-arrack state. Progent can also help you to perform a full forensic review and generate a report to share with the insurance provider. This document identifies cybersecurity gaps that must be fixed and suggests actions that can be performed to block future ransomware attacks.

Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting payment for a decryption tool, modern variants of ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, DopplePaymer, and Nephilim often try to steal (or "exfiltrate") information. Hackers can then require a separate settlement in exchange for not publishing this data or selling it. Unfortunately, there exists no method to be certain that stolen files have been completely erased by the threat actor. Actually, in numerous cases the TA has little control over the disposition of the data. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of engaging the guidance of privacy attorneys, conducting an audit on which files were stolen, and carrying out the required notifications to impacted entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
