resilience

Abbreviation(s) and Synonym(s):

Information System Resilience

Definition(s):

  Official responsible for the overall procurement, development, integration, modification, or operation and maintenance of an information system.
Source(s):
NIST SP 800-53 Rev. 4 under Information System Resilience

  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.
Source(s):
NIST SP 800-39 under Information System Resilience
NIST SP 800-53 Rev. 4 under Information System Resilience

  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.

CNSSI 4009-2015 PPD 21
NIST SP 800-37 Rev. 2

  The ability of an information system to continue to operate while under attack, even if in a degraded or debilitated state, and to rapidly recover operational capabilities for essential functions after a successful attack.
Source(s):
NIST SP 800-30 Rev. 1 under Information System Resilience

  The ability to quickly adapt and recover from any known or unknown changes to the environment through holistic implementation of risk management, contingency, and continuity planning.
