Abstract: Existing disaster risk management guidance, used by owners and operators of critical infrastructures (CI), present abundant and heterogeneous collections of resilience, security, and safety indicators. Therefore, decision-makers are faced with complex risk-related assessments and decisions, aggravated by the fact that crises often span interdependent sectors and sovereign borders, with time-variable cascading effects. In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework for assessing the resilience of CI, that leverages on existing best practices for the governance and management of organizations, allowing for cross-sector and cross-borders implementation of resilience concepts to CI. We demonstrated the proposal using an ex ante scenario, and evaluated the proposal using the demonstration and conducting evaluation sessions with resilience experts. We conclude that the solution achieves the proposed framework objectives and may thus be instrumental in solving the complex resilience assessment problem.
