SANS Institute Provides Free Cyber Resource Center to Help Organizations Navigate Cyber Risk During Ukraine-Russia Conflict

BETHESDA, MD — February 25, 2022 — With the situation fast evolving in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, SANS Institute (SANS) is working to continuously develop and share with our community valuable resources to help navigate the heightened cyber threat during this escalating crisis.

This warning comes in response to the escalation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which includes boots-on-the-ground tactics as well as cyber-attacks.

All organizations find themselves potential targets for cyber-attacks during these tumultuous times. The SANS Cyber Resource Center is available at
