Ransomware –

Ransomware poses a threat to you and your endpoint device. But what makes this form of malware so special? “Ransom” is the English term for “ransom.” The “ransomware” phenomenon is about extorting ransom money. Often, people also talk about encryption software, as this type of extortion is based on the fact that files or entire systems are encrypted and only released after receiving a ransom.

In most cases, a ransomware infection proceeds as follows: the malware is downloaded and thus gains access to the device. Depending on the type of ransomware, either the entire operating system or individual files are encrypted. In the following, ransom is then demanded from the victims concerned.

If you want to minimize the risk of a ransomware attack, you should use high-quality services from Foreus. With our solution “DeepWeb Intelligence” we support companies in case of damage, but also in prevention (here the risk of attack is reduced). In the event of damage, we can search the Clearnet, DeepWeb and Darknet for stolen data and track or monitor its distribution.

DeepWeb Intelligence

“DeepWeb Intelligence” is also offered to our clients in the form of darknet penetration testing. A darknet penetration test means searching the darknet and deepweb for relevant data that can be offered for sale by criminals. All the results we obtain are included in the results report for the IT departments.

This is how DeepWeb Intelligence or Darknet Penetration Testing works:

  • After an attack on a company, the entire facts are recorded together with one of our case managers.
  • Together with IT experts, lawyers and data protection experts, a strategy for further action is defined so that our work can be focused and aligned with the customer’s objective.
  • Afterwards you will receive a detailed result report. This includes all threats that exist for your company, technical recommendations for action for the IT department and legal recommendations for action.

What is needed to support you in the best possible way:

  • We need a contact person to be able to respond to findings on our part at any time.
  • In case of an attack, we need all the information that will help us to investigate (e.g. email addresses of phishing mails, email headers, the link to the darknet site, etc.).
  • In case of a ransom payment, we also need the wallet addresses and the transaction hashes to be able to track the money’s path.

If preventive measures already seize leaked data, you will receive personalized recommendations for action. In addition, implementing these measures will protect your reputation.
