Information system resilience is

The concept of information system resilience can also be applied to the other classes of threats, including threats from environmental disruptions and/or human errors of omission/commission.[1]
[t]he ability of an information system to: (1) continue to operate under adverse conditions or stress, even if in a degraded or debilitated state, while maintaining essential operational capabilities; and (2) recover effectively in a timely manner.[2]
