Our Thoughts On


Big Problem: Company Impacted By Ransomware.

Big Thinking: Restore System On-site And Avoid Six-figure Ransom.

TREVOR WARREN joined Schneider Downs in 2001 and has more than 20 years of experience in public accounting. He mainly focuses on audit, review, and compilation engagements, and services a diversified number of industries from automotive to nonprofit.
One of Trevor’s clients fell victim to ransomware. Their system was locked down and the ransom was in the mid six-figures. The company had cyber insurance and was referred to a few firms that were more focused on negotiating the ransom instead of assisting in restoring the system. That’s when Trevor received a call from the company’s CFO. “I was able to immediately get the CFO in touch with our cyber team, who were on-site and working with their Director of Information Technology quickly,” said Trevor. “We were able to successfully restore the client’s system and remove any threat of ransomware. Plus, the client did not have to pay any of the ransom and most of our fees were covered through their cyber insurance.” Schneider Downs provides Big Thinking and Personal Focus in delivering a variety of services for large and small businesses, both publicly and privately held, as well as nonprofit organizations, government entities and more. Through our commitment to thought leadership and knowledge management, we deliver the solutions our clients need with a personal commitment to service.
