Triple extortion is an attempt by a ransomware gang to use stolen data to inform or extort the victim organization’s customers and clients. It’s called “triple extortion” because it’s a third method—following ransom demands for a decryption key and exposing confidential information—for prying a fee from a victim. Triple extortion demands can happen week, months, and even years after the original incident.
