Developing Cyber Resilient Systems: A Systems Security Engineering Approach

September 12, 2019


The goal of the NIST Systems Security Engineering initiative is to address security, safety, and resiliency issues from a stakeholder requirements and protection needs perspective, using established engineering processes to ensure that those requirements and needs are addressed across the entire system life cycle to develop more trustworthy systems. To that end, Draft NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-160 Volume 2Developing Cyber Resilient Systems: A Systems Security Engineering Approach, focuses on cyber resiliency engineering, an emerging specialty systems engineering discipline, applied in conjunction with resilience engineering and systems security engineering to develop more survivable, trustworthy systems. Cyber resiliency engineering aims to design, architect, and develop systems with the ability to anticipate, withstand, recover from, and adapt to adverse conditions, stresses, attacks, or compromises that use or are enabled by cyber resources.
