Talos is proud of not only our team's cybersecurity response but also a volunteer OSINT force of over 500 motivated Cisco teammates. Even more are undertaking humanitarian refugee relief efforts to make life just a little safer and easier in a part of the world many have never been. Teams have set aside their normal tasks, and now watch over Ukrainian networks, others have focused on caring for and protecting refugees and still, others have turned their obsession with social media into a critical component of our open-source intelligence work.
