The quality of information is crucial to the success of asset delivery, management, and performance in the Digitised Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations (DAECO) sector. The exposure and sensitivity of DAECO information to threats during its lifecycle leaves it vulnerable, affecting the intrinsic, relational, and security dimensions of information quality. A resilient information lifecycle perspective that identifies capabilities and requirements is therefore needed to assure information quality amid threats. This research develops and presents an information resilience (IR) framework by drawing on the theories of resilience, information quality, and vulnerability.

Dr Karen Blay states:

“This project developed a holistic Information Resilience (IR) model to 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 project was funded by the Centre for Digital Built Britain:
