Abstract

The term "resilience" has evolved to a key concept of security policy in recent years. This development is closely interrelated with the change in the perception of what actually is "security". The long search for clearly definable threats has been replaced by the management of relatively indefinite risk positions. Based on a qualitative analysis of security policy documents, this article illustrates the state of the art in the conceptual development of the term "resilience". Cumulatively, these documents allow us to segment the term around the constitutive elements of coping, adaptability and redundancy. Together, these form the basis of a resilience-based strategy of risk management.
