Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Consulting
Ransomware Defense and Recovery ConsultantsProgent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs). Negotiating an acceptable settlement is a complex exercise that calls for a mix of real-word experience, technical knowledge and business savvy. It also calls for close co-operation with the cyber-extortion target's IT team and the cyber insurance provider, if there is one. Because the number one goal of the ransomware victim is operational continuity, it is vital to establish recovery teams that work efficiently, concurrently, and with intimate collaboration. Progent has the breadth of technical skills and the depth of experts to complement your network staff and recover your network rapidly and economically.

Support available from Progent's ransomware settlement team include:

  • Establishing the kind of ransomware used in the assault
  • Identifying and communicating with the hacker persona
  • Assessing the likelihood of recovery
  • Testing the hacker's decryption capabilities
  • Budgeting a settlement amount with the victim and the cyber insurance provider
  • Negotiating a settlement amount and timeline with the hacker
  • Verifying compliance with anti-money laundering (AML) sanctions
  • Managing the crypto-currency disbursement to the TA
  • Receiving, learning, and operating the threat actor's decryption mechanism
  • If necessary, contacting the hacker for technical help with the decryption utility
Concurrent with the ransom negotiations, Progent's ransomware team can help with:
  • Isolating infected endpoints and data stores to arrest the spread of the assault
  • Making digital copies of every infected server and endpoint and data store to allow forensics without interfering with restoration
  • Adding anti-virus agents to all clean endpoints
  • Recovering files from air-gapped restores or uncompromised machines
  • Building a pristine environment
  • Remapping and reconnecting datastores to match exactly their pre-attack condition
After the decryption tool has been mastered, Progent can assist you to recover machines and services to their original state. Progent can also help you to conduct comprehensive forensics and generate a document to deliver to the insurance provider. This document identifies cybersecurity gaps that must be corrected and suggests steps to be performed to combat future ransomware assaults.

Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting money for a decryption utility, current strains of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, Netwalker, and Egregor commonly try to exfiltrate files. Hackers are then able to require an extra ransom in exchange for not divulging this data on the dark web. Sadly, there exists no way to be certain that stolen files have been completely deleted by the hacker. Actually, in many instances the TA has little say about the disposition of the data. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the necessity of engaging the advice of legal counsel, performing an audit on which data were stolen, and carrying out the mandated notifications to impacted entities. In general, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
