In today’s Risk Society, risks exist everywhere, so human beings face great uncertainty challenges. In the new era, with the rapid changes of international and domestic environment and the rapid development of tourism, tourism security risks become more severe and complex, testing the ability and level of human risk management. Only by preventing and resolving all kinds of tourism security risks, can human beings promote the development of high-quality tourism and enhance happiness index and sense of gain. On the basis of explaining the connotation of tourism security risk resilience governance, this paper analyzes the present situation and the outstanding problems in governance, and puts forward the optimization path of strengthening the performance of tourism security risk resilience governance in risk society. The paper holds that: (1) Tourism security risk refers to the possible risk factors in tourism activities with the characteristics of superposition, uncertainty and extreme consequences; (2) The tenacity governance is different from the traditional governance model in understanding, focusing on the key points, goals and using the power. (3) In the contemporary society, the tourism security risk has the characteristics of more diverse and complicated sources, stronger uncertainty, wider dissemination area and greater destructiveness. (4) The traditional disaster risk and emergency management model is backward in concept, inexperienced, imperfect in system and mechanism, unable to respond effectively to new situations and needs, so our human beings should  carry out resilient governance based on the overall situation to improve the capacity and level of tourism security administration. (5) The important ways to strengthen tourism resilience include forming a new concept of tourism security, strengthening the study of tourism security risks, improving the resilience governance mechanism of tourism security, and ensuring multi-dimensional security of tourism destinations. This paper establishes a basic framework for tourism security risk governance and has a high theoretical reference for enhancing understanding and practical guiding value for the development of tourism security risk management system and capacity building.
