Trust or fear: what will be the main incentive for cooperation after the crisis?
When a crisis comes and we need help, there are two main feelings that drive people to reach out to others — trust and fear. We call on those we trust and do it in fear of not being able to cope with it ourselves. However, if the latter feeling is quick to catch, the former needs a lot more time and effort to be built.. During the pandemic, we all witnessed a rise of cybercrime and came together to deal with this threat. But what will drive and influence the global community after this crisis? Will we be able to build trust and join forces against cybercrime or will we need another crisis to unite us once again?
