NIST Special Publication 800-160 Volume 2, Designing Cyber Resilient Systems: A Systems Security Engineering Approach, defines cyber resiliency as the ability to anticipate, withstand, recover from, and adapt to adverse conditions, stresses, attacks, or compromises on cyber resources. NIST SP 800-160 Vol. 2 offers a framework for understanding the problem space and the cyber resiliency solution space. It supports engineering analysis and judgment, identifying factors to consider when making trade-offs among different possible capabilities. It includes notional worked examples, to illustrate how cyber resiliency concepts and technologies can be tailored to different environments. For healthcare providers, implementing cyber resiliency could mean preventing loss of life.
