Data used in this study are news articles taken from Republika Newspaper website. The result shows that the Indonesian Authority and its banks take various actions and plans, which are crucial in managing the banks to survive the pandemic crisis. The pandemic also has brought changes to the landscape of the Indonesian financial industry in a better way to manage risks to prepare for a similar crisis in the future.
