Definition: Resilience

In the Critical Infrastructure Resilience Programme, resilience is defined as “the ability of a system or organisation to withstand and recover from adversity”.

A resilient organisation is one that is still able to achieve its core objectives in the face of adversity through a combination of measures.

Physical protection may make up an important part of resilience, but it is not the only factor. Resilience is also underpinned by good design of infrastructure networks, effective emergency response, business continuity planning, and recovery arrangements.
