Security and resilience — Organizational resilience — Principles and attributes

More resilient organizations can anticipate and respond to threats and opportunities, arising from sudden or gradual changes in their internal and external context. Enhancing resilience can be a strategic organizational goal, and is the outcome of good business practice and effectively managing risk.

An organization's resilience is influenced by a unique interaction and combination of strategic and operational factors. Organizations can only be more or less resilient; there is no absolute measure or definitive goal.
A commitment to enhanced organizational resilience contributes to:
— an improved ability to anticipate and address risks and vulnerabilities;
— increased coordination and integration of management disciplines to improve coherence and performance;
— a greater understanding of interested parties and dependencies that support strategic goals, and objectives.
There is no single approach to enhance an organization's resilience. There are established management disciplines that contribute towards resilience but, on their own, these disciplines are insufficient to safeguard an organization's resilience. Instead, organizational resilience is the result of the interaction of attributes and activities, and contributions made from other technical and scientific areas of expertise. These are influenced by the way in which uncertainty is addressed, decisions are made and enacted, and how people work together.
This document establishes the principles for organizational resilience. It identifies the attributes and activities that support an organization in enhancing its resilience.
This document includes:
— principles providing the foundation for enhancing an organization's resilience;
— attributes describing the characteristics of an organization that allow the principles to be adopted;
— activities guiding the utilization, evaluation and enhancement of attributes.
