National Security Scheme

National Security Scheme

The Port Authority of Castellon (APC) uses Information Technology and Communications systems (hereinafter ICT) to achieve its objectives. These systems are duly and diligently administered, and stringent measures are taken to protect them against accidental or deliberate attacks that could affect the security of the information processed or the services provided.

The objective of information security is to safeguard and protect information and the provision of services on an ongoing basis, taking preventive measures, monitoring daily operations and reacting swiftly to any incidents.

The APC, like any organisation, is part of an interconnected, globalised world, and is therefore also exposed to information threats. Therefore, ICT systems must be protected against any possible attacks.

Regarding the relationship between citizens and government agencies, Spanish Law 39/2015, of 1 October, on the Common Administrative Procedure for Public Administration, includes the right to “the protection of personal data, and in particular to the security and confidentiality of data contained in the files, systems and applications of government agencies”. In addition, Spanish Law 40/2015 states that the National Security Scheme (hereinafter ENS), “aims to establish a set of regulations to maintain the necessary security conditions in the use of electronic means in the public sector.”

Thus, the purpose of the ENS is to generate conditions of trust that guarantee the security of systems, data, communications and electronic services, enabling citizens and public administrations to exercise their rights and fulfil their duties through electronic means. Spanish Royal Decree 3/2010, of 8 January, which regulates the ENS in the field of e-government, lays the foundations to meet this objective.
