Disaster Recovery Institute’s International Glossary for Resilience

The DRI glossary does not create new definitions. Instead, they have selected and presented the best-in-class definitions already in use in the English language.  Their objectives are: 

  • to promote a common set of universal terms
  • to reduce confusion and remove inconsistencies between parties
  • to facilitate coordination
  • to provide a standard translation of technical terms specific to the profession.

    Please include the DRJ Glossary of Business Continuity Terms. In April 2017, the DRJ Glossary of Business Continuity Terms merged with the BCI Dictionary. Later in Sept 2018, the document incorporated the former CPM Glossary.
