Manifesto for Information Resilience
Our vision for Information Resilience is outlined in the 2022 paper “Information Resilience: the nexus of responsible and agile approaches to information use” published in the VLDB Journal, Special Issue on Responsible Data Management. Here the Centre’s cross-disciplinary team outlines a 17-point manifesto for Information Resilience.
Abstract: The appetite for effective use of information assets has been steadily rising in both public and private sector organisations. However, whether the information is used for social good or commercial gain, there is a growing recognition of the complex socio-technical challenges associated with balancing the diverse demands of regulatory compliance and data privacy, social expectations and ethical use, business process agility and value creation, and scarcity of data science talent. In this vision paper, we present a series of case studies that highlight these interconnected challenges, across a range of application areas. We use the insights from the case studies to introduce Information Resilience, as a scaffold within which the competing requirements of responsible and agile approaches to information use can be positioned. The aim of this paper is to develop and present a manifesto for Information Resilience that can serve as a reference for future research and development in relevant areas of responsible data management.
