National security scheme


The Port Authority of Avilés depends on the ICT systems to achieve its goals. These systems must be diligently managed, taking all measures possible to protect them against accidental or deliberate damage that may affect the security of the processed information or the services rendered.

The aim of our information security is to guarantee the information quality and the continuous rendering of services, acting preventively, monitoring daily activities and reacting rapidly to possible incidents.

ICT systems must be protected against the evolution of any possible threats which have the potential to affect confidentiality, integrity, availability, traceability and authenticity of information and services.

In order to fight these possible threats, a strategy which is able to adapt to the undergoing changes in the surrounding conditions is required to guarantee the continuous rendering of services. This implies the implementation of minimum security measures required by the National Security Scheme, as well as the constant control of the service rendering levels, monitoring and analyzing the reported vulnerabilities and the preparation of an effective reaction to these incidents in order to secure the continuity of the services rendered.
