At GroupSense, there’s such a demand for ransomware remediation services they’ve added a hotline that’s featured prominently on the frontpage of their website. No one escapes this form of cyberthreat, Minder told Insider.
“We do a fair number of these and the companies vary in size from very large, well-known, NASDAQ-traded firms down to local dry cleaners,” Minder said. “There are so many of them that are so small, we just do the work pro bono.”
One firm Minder worked with recently, a 70-employee company in the imaging industry, retained GroupSense to help with the full cycle of the remediation process (while GroupSense has the capacity to help its clients with the full cycle of recovery, it maintains extensive knowledge of the dark web and sometimes only negotiates for the decryption of the files).
