Critical Infrastructures

Protecting critical infrastructures entails considering performances that extend beyond simple material security against potential aggression or attack given the fact that such infrastructures are becoming increasingly ICT dependent, both for their management and their linkage to other systems, which is done quite often by way of public, open media.

In this regard, the national response was formalized in Law 8/2011, dated April 28, whereby measures are established for the Protection of Critical Infrastructures, and a Royal Decree 704/2011, dated May 20, which approves the Regulations on Critical Infrastructure Protection.

This legislation controls the agents that comprise the Critical Infrastructure Protection System as well as the planning instruments which serve as its basis, aiming to establish the strategies and structures required to improve the State’s prevention of, preparedness and response to threats that may affect critical infrastructures, thus improving their security and resilience.
