Organisational resilience

​Organisational resilience means a business can:

  • adapt as the global environment evolves
  • respond to short term shocks or adverse events, including natural disasters or cyber attacks
  • shape itself to respond to long term challenges.

The Australian Government takes an all-hazards approach to resilience. It seeks to increase the capability of organisations and communities to survive, recover and adapt to all types of threats. This approach uplifts the security and resilience of critical infrastructure, in line with the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018.

The importance of organisational resilience

In a constantly changing global environment, more organisations are realising that traditional corporate strategies are failing to protect them from unexpected events.

By adopting principles of organisational resilience, critical infrastructure organisations can better manage unforeseen risks and threats to their continuity of essential services that the Australian public are vitally dependent on.
