Our ransomware attack remediation expert provides you with the reliable ransomware recovery, partner.
More often than not, when a data breach or another cyber security incident occurs within an organization, business, or even government agency; the organization is inadequately prepared to respond effectively. In certain instances, the team is unaware that an attack is even occurring until it's too late. This could be for a number of reasons, but lacking a cyber incident alerting mechanism, application security, employee cyber hygiene, and/or a cyber incident response plan, even a disaster recovery plan is not unusual for small businesses these days.
When Ransomware attacks happen, we understand that your business or organization's environment can become hectic very quickly. This is especially the case if you have mission-critical information being held hostage/ransom, or if critical systems have been compromised. According to statistics- a large percentage of businesses won't recover from ransomware attacks. If the proper procedures are in place, and the right team is in the driver’s seat- recovery isn’t that far away.
All of our cyber incident response services (including ransomware remediation services) follow guidelines as identified by NIST, per company protocol. This enables your organization to understand that we are dealing with this incident properly. You can find more specific information related to the handling guidelines including processes and procedures here: https://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/SpecialPublications/NIST.SP.800-61r2.pdf
Our remediation team can work with your executives, your management teams, and your end users. We will collect and report technical information to your team that you may have something to show your insurance company. We will work as fast as possible to expedite the recovery process if your business has been impacted in a way where your operations are disabled from the cyber-attack.
Depending on the size of your business, we may need to acclimate a team of technicians and possibly a manager for your Ransomware Remediation project. Since this is a mission-critical operation, our hours will be extended from 8-hour days to 12-hour workdays (if needed).
Our Project Manager will continuously collect information from our incident response team and report back to your executives as quickly as needed, throughout each day. Doing this throughout each day will enable us to create a recovery plan and restore operations as quickly as possible. We will create a timeline and document all information. This information can be used to provide the insurance company with a detail-oriented report or additional information or to document for the accounting or management team of your organization.
When we check the infected, impacted systems, we will examine these systems with a fine-tooth comb, and we will have to inspect the hard drive from a Linux machine (or another non-windows-based machine). We will check the boot record and hidden areas for suspicious files, and we also check these systems with multiple antivirus types to ensure that any abnormality or suspicious file is detected. We check the in-house server and domain controllers with equal effort.
We’ll do as much as we can to mitigate further risks rather than provide a band-aid solution to the current problem, but our priority is to return your business to operational status. The key to proper remediation is identifying the attack vector for the current incident, then re-designing the foundation of the computer network to more bulletproof cybersecurity requirements in place.
Our cyber security experts /information security professionals will work with your teams to restore your files and secure your information the right way. You are assured that your data will be handled in a very controlled fashion with the aim to retain as much user data as possible through the safest methods available.
Once your organization has recovered from the ransomware incident, we will provide documentation and information which we collect throughout the attack remediation process. We will have a very detail-oriented overview of what has been done by this point. Additionally, we will have a list of recommendations. This will include important steps and recommendations needed in order to rebuild your network infrastructure with a higher level of cybersecurity. We can provide this to you, so you may have your own team roll out the recommendations, or we can continue to work with you to rebuild and assist your business moving forward.
We can design and configure a system that supplies your organization with rapid detection and response to threats before they become an actual attack. This can be as simple as intercepting a phishing email, taking incremental backups, and restricting user access with more strict policy control requirements. The most effective means of ransomware response is by preventing ransomware before it happens. This is through proper protection, tools, and business processes that are focused on preventing ransomware attacks before they become a problem; and most likely before they become an attack.
When rebuilding an IT Environment after a ransomware attack, we aim to prevent ransomware. Several key components aid in the cyber resilience and effectiveness of our ransomware prevention strategies:
Once built, we can help proactively manage as much or as little of the Information technology aspects of your business as well as the Cybersecurity aspects of your computer network. Our systems will allow us to provide ongoing monitoring and proactive security patch management, as well as email security and cloud application security with advanced threat detection, as well as many other features. Please review our Managed Cyber Security Services page for more details. This can be provided with or without basic Managed IT Services, such as help-desk support, and remote support (for day-to-day business operations).

Ransomware is a type of malware from crypto virology that threatens to publish the victim's personal data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. While some simple ransomware may lock the system without damaging any files, more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion. It encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. In a properly implemented cryptoviral extortion attack, recovering the files without the decryption key is an intractable problem – and difficult to trace digital currencies such as Paysafecard or Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are used for the ransoms, making tracing and prosecuting the perpetrators difficult. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out using a Trojan disguised as a legitimate file that the user is tricked into downloading or opening when it arrives as an email attachment. However, one high-profile example, the WannaCry worm, traveled automatically between computers without user interaction. Starting as early as 1989 with the first documented ransomware known as the AIDS trojan, the use of ransomware scams has grown internationally. There were 181.5 million ransomware attacks in the first six months of 2018. This record marks a 229% increase over this same time frame in 2017. In June 2014, vendor McAfee released data showing that it had collected more than double the number of ransomware samples that quarter in the same quarter of the previous year. CryptoLocker was particularly successful, procuring an estimated US$3 million before it was taken down by authorities, and CryptoWall was estimated by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to have accrued over US$18 million by June 2015. In 2020, the IC3 received 2,474 complaints identified as ransomware with adjusted losses of over $29.1 million. The losses could be more than that, according to the FBI. According to a report by SonicWall, there were around 623 million ransomware attacks in 2021.

We don’t actually require a longer-term support contract for remediation services. But there are large benefits to opting to select a managed services agreement with Race Computer Services. When we rebuild your network during a Remediation Service, we need to integrate cyber security infrastructure into the foundational layers of your network. This means that you’re going to need a technical stack and administrator in place to manage the technical stack moving forward. If you want to do this internally, we can do it for you, or if you want us to help with this, we can do that as well. In either case, we need to know which direction you would like to move forward with at the beginning of the project.
Race Computer Services is equally equipped to remediate ransomware for larger scale or enterprise level businesses as it is for smaller businesses.
Race Computer Services develops a reasonable portion of revenue from Ransomware Remediation services, and we are equipped to handle these without any issues. All of our Ransomware Remediation processes follow procedures and guidelines identified by NIST and other government agencies. You can find more information on https://www.cisa.gov/
