ISO 22300:2018 Security and resilience - Vocabulary

This International Standard defines terms used in security and resilience standards and includes 277 terms and definitions. This second was published in the beginning of 2018 and replaces the previous edition from 2012.

The revised ISO 22300 cover the whole area of Security and resilience while the 1st edition only covered standards published by the now dissolved committee ISO/TC 223 on Societal security. 


Norma McCormick (Canada), the project leader responsible for the revision of ISO 22300, explains:

"ISO/TC 292 has taken are resolution  stating that all standards developed by the committee shall include a normative reference to ISO 22300. This ensures that we use a consistent language in our committee as well as in all our documents.

We have also established a process for maintaining ISO 22300 on an on-going basis. By posting all terms and definitions to ISO’s the Online Browsing Platform (OBP) and providing a link to the OBP within each TC 292 standard, the users of each standard are assured that definitions are always current and correct."
