As the Ukraine-Russia war intensifies, tech companies and the tech community are responding with actions against Russia and support for the Ukraine.

According to CNBC, Ukrainian and Russian officials wrapped up a critical round of talks Monday near the border with Belarus. More negotiations could come in the days ahead.

In the meantime, Ukraine’s armed forces continue to hold off Russian troops. They’re defending and retaining control of key cities, and slowing Russia’s advance on Kyiv.

The U.S. Commerce Department, through its Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has implemented a sweeping series of stringent export controls to severely restrict Russia’s access to technologies and other items that it needs to sustain its military capabilities.

Mandiant CEO Kevin Mandia was on CNBC Monday addressing cybersecurity concerns related to the crisis. Mandiant has created a task force and initiated a global event to track the escalating crisis.

Cybercriminals have enjoyed the protection of Russia for a long time, according to Mandiant. In addition, the Conti ransomware group has made some public statements about carrying out attacks on behalf of Russia.
