“You Say Incident, I Say Event” – A look at defining a term

Author: DRI Glossary Committee

In recognizing the critical importance of effective communications within the resilience community, DRI created a committee to develop a new reference document that combines the most common business continuity and resilience terms and definitions into a single guide. Most terms were relatively straightforward in their definition, and others required more discussion and analysis by the committee. The analysis of one term, incident, became a long-term discussion, with no consensus reached. The Glossary Committee presents this white paper on defining incident to showcase the continuing effort for effective communications in our community.
