Text of the presentation of the National Security Framework of Spain for Guide Share Europe, in Madrid in October 2011.
The National Security Framework (NSF) of Spain is in the service of the right of citizens to interact electronically with their government. The NSF establishes the security policy in the scope of eGovernment (Law 11/2007) and consists of basic principles and minimum requirements to allow an adequate protection of information. It is a legal text (Royal Decree 3/2010).
The NSF introduces common elements and concepts that provide guidance to public administrations and that facilitate the communication of information security requirements to Industry. Recommendations of the OECD, EU, standards and experiences from other countries were considered.
This National Security Framework, as well as the National Interoperability Framework, is the result of a collective effort of all public administrations and also of the Industry through their associations. Both of them are part of the well known effort of Spain to develop the Information Society and eGovernment.
