WARNING: If you have been the victim of a ransomware attack, it is EXTREMELY important to contact Harmony Tech as soon as possible to begin the ransomware recovery process. The longer you wait, the less likely the chance of a recovery.
Ransomware Recovery Overview
Ransomware is one of the latest, and most severe, security threats facing businesses of all sizes. Ransomware will infect a computer operating system, connect to the network shares, and encrypt files on the network shares. Each infected file is encrypted and no longer can be opened by the program it was created with.
Usually, in an encrypted directory, a text file is created that has a ransom “readme”. It is the only file that can be opened in the entire directory. That file is a ransom note that will list instructions on WHO and HOW to pay to retrieve your files unencrypted from the hacker who built the ransomware.
Typically the cost to buy the decryption key is anywhere from $500 to $50,000 or more. The FBI has asked that no business pay the ransom as it encourages the hackers to continue to build more encrypting viruses. You can report ransomware to the FBI here. Typically, the ransomware comes from a criminal outside of the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to recover from a ransomware infection?
How much does it cost to recover from a ransomware infection.
The cost can vary greatly, but Harmony Tech charges $150 per man hour. As an estimate, a single infected system with good backups or a well-known ransomware infection with available decryptor would cost approximately $450 to recover. For a small network with 1 server and a dozen workstations, with good backups, it would take approximately 40 man hours to get everything back up and running and backups restored. PLEASE NOTE: Each project is completely different and these numbers are examples only.
