What Is Data Resiliency?

Data resiliency (or information resiliency) refers to a system's or organization's ability to withstand and recover from various data-related disruptions (e.g., hardware failures, software errors, cyber-attacks, human errors, etc.). High data resiliency means you can recover from adverse data-related events while maintaining data integrity and availability. Data resiliency is a major consideration in backup strategies, disaster recovery, and general data security.
