Lessons learned from the Pandemic and its affects on CI, Health, Transport and Financial sectors

The pandemic has certainly caused a lot of disruption to everyday lives, the economy and provided new challenges for our critical infrastructure to maintain continuous supply of services. Different sectors have managed in different ways, but have there been any outstanding successes. What can we learn from the events of the past 2 years and how can we be better prepared for the next pandemic to minimise impact on the critical infrastructure services, to which life and the economy are so reliant?
