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.
