Erkan said: “At first sight, our short-term perceptions of crises can be negative, but we can learn from them. If we see them in this way, crises may present opportunities and, in the long term, bring beneficial results. When preparing an action plan for crises, we should focus on how to overcome them in the correct manner. This is where technology can play a crucial role. We should look for the benefits technology can provide at each stage of the crisis management process and integrate technology into our post-crisis planning.
