This opens up an overall analysis to study the vulnerabilities from different angles and their impact on different areas of business such as operations, and communications. A thorough review is also done of similar scenarios that happened in the past with other establishments. Ongoing trends in the digital landscape are researched along with the long-term risks associated with the business services, as a result of the crisis.
