information system resilience

Abbreviation(s) and Synonym(s):

Resilience

Definition(s):

  The ability of an information system to continue to: (i) operate under adverse conditions or stress, even if in a degraded or debilitated state, while maintaining essential operational capabilities; and (ii) recover to an effective operational posture in a time frame consistent with mission needs.

NISTIR 8074 Vol. 2 under Resilience from ASIS SPC.1-2009

  The ability to reduce the magnitude and/or duration of disruptive events to critical infrastructure. The effectiveness of a resilient infrastructure or enterprise depends upon its ability to anticipate, absorb, adapt to, and/or rapidly recover from a potentially disruptive event.
Source(s):
NISTIR 8074 Vol. 2 under Resilience from Critical Infrastructure Resilience Final Report and Recommendations

  The ability to prepare for and adapt to changing conditions and withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions. Resilience includes the ability to withstand and recover from deliberate attacks, accidents, or naturally occurring threats or incidents.
