National Security Scheme

National Security Scheme

The Castellón Port Authority (hereinafter APCS) depends on Information Technology and Communications systems (hereinafter ICT) to achieve its objectives. These systems are duly administered, diligently, adopting the most appropriate measures to protect them against accidental or deliberate damage that may affect the security of the information processed or the services provided.

The objective of information security is to keep and protect information and the provision of services on an ongoing basis, adopting preventive measures, monitoring daily activity and reacting to incidents.

The APCS, like any organization, is part of this interconnected and globalized world, and therefore is also exposed to information threats. Therefore, ICT systems must be protected against these possible threats.

Law 39/2015, of October 1, on the Common Administrative Procedure of Public Administrations, includes in terms of the relationship between citizens and Public Administrations, the right relating to “the protection of personal data, and in particular to the security and confidentiality of the data that appear in the files, systems and applications of the Public Administrations ”. Furthermore, Law 40/2015 determines that the National Security Scheme (hereinafter ENS), “aims to establish the security policy in the use of electronic media in the public sector.”

In this way, the purpose of the ENS is to generate conditions of trust that guarantee the security of systems, data, communications, and electronic services, which allows citizens and public administrations, the exercise of rights and compliance of homework through electronic means. Royal Decree 3/2010, of January 8, which regulates the ENS in the field of electronic administration, lays the foundations to achieve this confidence.
