When a critical network service is the target​ of ransomware or your company’s data is used for a cyber extortion attack, a quick determination must be made about the nature and extent of the attack, a response plan, and mitigation. The longer an attack remains unaddressed, the more potential damage can be incurred as a result of data and service inaccessibility.

As part of Flashpoint Professional Services (FPS), this offering helps teams in the event of a single ransomware or cyber extortion incident both respond to the event as well as monitor proactively for related threats following the incident.
