The aim of this paper is to present a new approach to the resilience of the defense system (DEFS) of a target based on the viewpoint of the attacker. We begin by dividing the defense system into three shields: the threats anticipation system, the detection system and the system dedicated to protective measures. From this framework we then show that these three systems play an important role in the process of resilience that encompasses three aspects: the level of preparedness, the ability to respond and the potential for recovery.
