A crisis (plural: crises), coming from the Greek κρίσις (krisis) is any event that is, or is expected to lead to, a dangerous or consequential situation affecting one person, an entire group, community or whole society. Crises are labelled to be negative or bad changes in the security, economic, political, societal or environmental issues, especially when they happen unexpectedly (with little or no warning).
