Progent's Ransomware Settlement Negotiation Services in Mexico City
Progent has experience negotiating ransomware settlements with threat actors (TAs). Reaching an optimum settlement is a complex activity that calls for a mix of field experience, IT skills and business acumen. It also demands working closely with the victim's IT team and the insurance carrier, if there is one. Because the top goal of the ransomware target is operational continuity, it is vital to establish recovery groups that work effectively, in parallel, and with intimate collaboration. Progent has the scope of technical skills and the depth of personnel to supplement your IT support team and recover your network quickly and economically.
Support available from Progent's ransomware negotiation team include:
Concurrent with the ransom negotiations, Progent's ransomware staff can help with:
- Determining the type of ransomware used in the assault
- identifying and contacting the hacker
- Evaluating the likelihood of recovery
- Verifying the TA's decryption capabilities
- Agreeing on a settlement range with the victim and the insurance provider
- Establishing a settlement amount and timeline with the TA
- Verifying compliance with anti-money laundering laws
- Overseeing the crypto-currency transfer to the TA
- Receiving, learning, and operating the TA's decryptor utility
- If needed, contacting the hacker for technical help with the decryptor utility
After the decryption tool has been learned, Progent can assist you to recover machines and services to their pre-arrack condition. Progent can also help you to perform a full forensic review and create a document to deliver to the insurance carrier. This document identifies cybersecurity gaps that need to be eliminated and recommends steps that can be performed to block future ransomware assaults.
- Quarantining infected endpoints and data stores to arrest the progress of the assault
- Making replicas of every breached device and data store to allow forensics in parallel with cleanup
- Adding anti-virus protection to all clean endpoints
- Salvaging files from air-gapped restores or uncompromised machines
- Creating a clean environment
- Mapping and connecting datastores to reflect precisely their pre-encryption condition
In addition to demanding payment for a decryption tool, modern strains of ransomware such as Ryuk, Maze, DopplePaymer, and Nephilim commonly try to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. TAs can then require an additional ransom in exchange for not publishing this data on the dark web. Unfortunately, there exists no method to guarantee that exfiltrated files have been totally erased by the hacker. Actually, in many cases the hacker has little say over data custody. Paying an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for engaging the guidance of privacy lawyers, performing an investigation into which files were stolen, and carrying out the required notifications to affected entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
