At Nihon Cyber Defence (NCD), we have seen the impact that cyber-attacks and in particular ransomware attacks can have. Whilst there have been major ransomware attacks that have dominated the headlines, the reality is that an enormous range of organizations are being impacted.

This increase in the number and sophistication of attacks has been driven by Ransomware as a Service (RaaS), that has made sophisticated cyber tools available to a growing range of criminal groups.

The purpose of our Ransomware Assessment service is to help you to identify what kind of ransomware has infected and encrypted your systems and assess the overall impact and severity of the ransomware. Organizations will be advised on the next steps after a complete assessment has been undertaken.


Organizations that believe that they may have become the victim of a cyber-attack should contact NCD through our online portal (please do not use an email address that may have been compromised in the attack). After the initial discussion has been started, a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) will be put in place to ensure full confidentiality of the organization. This initial discussion can be done in either English or Japanese depending on the preference of the organization.

After the initial discussion has finished, NCD’s consultants will then assess and produce what kind of ransomware has been used and the overall impact that the ransomware has caused, including details on what might be at risk in terms of double exploitation and if the ransomware can be decrypted. Then a secure video conferencing call will be set up between the organization’s management and NCD’s world-class cyber security experts to discuss the finding of the assessment and what organization should do next. This call can be in English or with Japanese translation.
