Most companies aren’t prepared for a ransomware attack outside of technical and incident responses.

You need to assume a ransomware attack will happen to your organization.

Ransomware attacks are sudden and devastating. Companies need to be prepared for the fallout, both internal and external, that occurs post-attack.

GroupSense has been on the front lines with small and large organizations alike, performing ransomware negotiations or assisting with the recovery from a ransomware attack. We have the experience you need to get ahead.

1. Start Your Playbook.

Included in this annual service is the creation and maintenance of a Ransomware Response Playbook that you may include in your overall Incident Response Plan. Ransomware playbooks involve more than just technical workflows.

The GroupSense playbook incorporates all aspects of a ransomware incident, such as executive decision making, inclusion of cyber insurance, legal counsel and public relations. Playbooks should be revisited at least annually as the business evolves. GroupSense will continue to be a resource in your efforts to evolve your response strategy and plans.


2. Executive Strategy Session

GroupSense is uniquely qualified to provide your leadership team with inside information on how these incidents play out, what to expect, best practices for successful outcomes and organizational readiness.

You’ll have an executive strategy session with Kurtis Minder, GroupSense CEO, a highly regarded expert in the field. Kurtis will share his experiences with previous ransomware and extortion cases, trends, recent developments, key concepts, and particular recommendations on readiness.


3. 24/7 Priority On-call Support

The GroupSense Ransomware Response Team will be on-call 24/7/365 to support you and your incident response provider in an incident. You’ll have a GroupSense lead negotiator on the phone within 4 hours of a declared incident.

We become a key member of the response team, providing intelligence on ransomware groups, such as their reputation and typical behavior. We will advise your leadership team on strategy, and take the lead on negotiating a successful settlement. The objective is to control the pace of the incident, increase the confidence of recovery via settlement and safely conduct a settlement leading to data recovery or other agreement.

Why GroupSense

GroupSense is the world’s leading firm for ransomware negotiation. We understand the ransomware threat groups and how they work better than most firms because we’ve negotiated with them numerous times. Many firms can do incident response inside your firewall; while that’s important, dealing with the external threat is much more critical due to the media attention ransomware attacks bring.

GroupSense is the best at preparing you for the worst-case scenario. Having GroupSense’s experience on your side can turn a high-profile public relations disaster into a mere blip on the radar.

Criminals are skittish. They’re not big on trust. GroupSense has been involved in the dark web for years.
We’re known. We’re trusted.

Enterprises need to take a more sophisticated approach to ransomware – most victims wind up suffering far more damage than is necessary, whether by overpaying threat actors, incurring brand damage and compliance violations from online data dumps or spending extended periods of time with no access to their critical data.
