The latest resilience news from around the world

DRII releases the 2018 edition of the International Glossary for Resilience

DRI International has announced the availability of the latest update to the International Glossary for Resilience, a language guide ‘designed to improve communications and increase clarity across the business continuity, disaster recovery, and resilience community’. 

During the development process a volunteer committee of industry leaders gathered to review and vote on a standard set of terms and definitions from 2,189 unique terms and 22 different reference documents. The result is a living document made from a common set of universal terms.

"For those of you familiar with the glossary, you will notice some changes, both to format and content,” commented Dean Gallup, MBCP, Chair of the Glossary Committee. “Our intent was to make the glossary more readable, easier to access, and consequently, more usable to those in the resilience community."
