The Resilience Measure Method to Information Systems

Aimin Luo, YuXiao Kou, Junxian Liu, Tao Chen

Abstract— Complex information system is always confronted with the various disturbing factors in practical application, and the resilience of the system is one of the important capabilities to deal with the disturbances. The disturbance makes the system capabilities change, and capabilities change reflects the resilience of the system. Through analyzing the response process of the system to the disturbance, a set of resilience evaluation metrics is established based on the change of the system capability. Since the capability is related to the efficiency of the system constitutions, the probability of successfully operation capability under the different condition of constitutions efficiency is taken as the value of the capability. Finally, the quantitative evaluation method of system resilience is provided and verified through case studies.

Index Terms— resilience, disruption, capability
