Northeastern University Defines Resilience

One university's approach to defining resilience.

Northeastern University has established the Global Resilience Institute (GRI), which I mentioned in an earlier blog post.

Now I've got two short videos that they created to market how they are defining resilience and working toward overcoming our increasing fragile system of systems when it comes to critical infrastructures. 

The first one is more general on the topic, but extremely well done by the president of the university

The other is with Steven Flynn, director of the Global Resilience Institute, and it has more detail and specificity about infrastructure and the interdependencies between infrastructures.
