- resilience (1): Information resiliency refers to the continuous availability of uncorrupted mission-critical information to support business or military operations, even under the threat of a cyber attack. An information resilient enterprise will continue to engage in its critical operations, despite the attacker’s attempts to intrude, corrupt or deny service. The manner and efficiency with which the operations are conducted may change somewhat, but they remain operative. The commercial world needs information resiliency to maintain its computing operations in order to prevent financial losses, while the military needs it to prevent casualties and tactical losses. In addition, information resiliency is needed to ensure that a country’s critical infrastructure (e.g. transportation, financial industry, electrical power) continues to operate during hostile attacks against their computing and communications systems.
