The Russian invasion of Ukraine has caused dramatic global security shifts. Security teams from around-the-globe have been consumed by the war, working daily to navigate business continuity and reputation, travel, evacuations, ramifications from sanctions, supply-chain impact, cyber and physical security implications, along with the risk that their organization faces as the war progresses.
