This paper investigates an event‐triggered adaptive resilient control problem for nonlinear systems against unknown false data injection and actuator saturation. The sensors of the controlled system are subject to unknown false data injection attacks so that all original states can not be directly applied in the controller design process. To address the negative effects of the false data injection attacks, attack compensators are introduced in control design. Simultaneously, a dynamic event‐triggering mechanism is set up to reduce the communication burden of the network. Furthermore, an auxiliary system is constructed to cope with the actuator saturation that commonly exists in practical systems. Based on the Lyapunov stability theory, it is demonstrated that the designed adaptive controller can guarantee the stability of the controlled system and the boundedness of all signals. The validity of the proposed control scheme is evidenced by simulation examples.
