If you really want to know the difference between security and resilience, pour yourself a cup of strong coffee and dig into the all-but-impenetrable PPD-21, Presidential Policy Directive—Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience. Or just go to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website, which cuts to the chase with a few good examples of each…
Scan these two lists, and you come to an inescapable conclusion: Security and resilience are not synonyms or even second cousins. In fact, security and resilience have remarkably little to do with one another. The measures under the “security” list are about locking up. Those under “resilience” are about standing up. Security is about hunkering down. Resilience is about doing business.
