Information Safety

Improving technology through lessons from safety.


What is Information Safety?

Information Safety is a reliability (or resilience) practice that uses methods originally developed for safety. Safety methods are being successfully applied to build and operate resilient software systems - systems that fail less often and recover from failure faster.
