Centre for Digital Built Britain completed its five-year mission and closed its doors at the end of September 2022

This website remains as a legacy of the achievements of our five-year foundational journey towards a digital built Britain

Information Resilience (IR) can be defined as the process of reducing the vulnerability of information to threats during its lifespan. The aim of this project is to develop a holistic IR model that will systematically demonstrate how information in digital built Britain could be made resilient throughout its lifecycle: creation and use, storage and reuse, and preservation stages. This will inform future digital policies and supplement existing work on information security risk and cover relevance and validity of information. 


The findings highlight the need for an IR model to be underpinned by stakeholder competencies and behaviours. This research will be further extended to the development of a decision-making assessment tool to measure capabilities and requirements in the entire lifecycle of built assets.

Next Steps

This framework is ready for adoption into the standards landscape, but would benefit from some case studies of its use in context.
