When an organization is targeted by ransomware or cyber extortion, it must quickly

determine the extent of the attack, determine the response plan, and mitigate the impact.

Flashpoint Professional Services (FPS) offers a Threat Response & Readiness Subscription that helps companies prepare for, as well as quickly assess and respond to, ransomware or cyber extortion attack.


Flashpoint Threat Readiness & Response Subscription is a natural extension of Trusted Intelligence which provides organizations with a decision advantage over threats and adversaries. Our data collections, threat actor research, and threat actor engagement are uniquely provided by robust technology, unmatched multilingual intelligence analyst expertise, and a highly experienced FPS team.

Flashpoint provides research to organizations impacted by attacks, as well as directly engages with threat actors; part of this engagement may also include providing access to cryptocurrency.


Ransomware and extortion are responsible for billions of dollars in losses each year across industries, and

while some high-profile attacks and success stories reach the mainstream, they are a tiny percentage of the

the true number of incidents and actual payouts made to adversaries.

FPS helps teams in the event of a single

ransomware or cyber extortion incident,

including tailored response and recovery of internal systems, resources to procure and acquire cryptocurrency on behalf of the impacted organization, as well as extensive monitoring within our expansive illicit community collections.
