ENAIRE tenders the implementation of the Technical Security Programme for 3.9 million euros
By doing so, ENAIRE takes a giant leap forward in the area of cybersecurity
ENAIRE's Technical Security Programme, the tender for which is worth 3.9 million euros, marks a new milestone in ENAIRE's cybersecurity culture as it represents a qualitative leap in the area of protecting the information and systems that underpin the sophisticated clockwork that makes air navigation possible.
The new Programme will further strengthen the already robust architecture of ENAIRE's ICT equipment, which is a key point in air transport.
The main features of this new service include threat detection and blocking; alert monitoring; identification of vulnerabilities; incident prevention; and an efficient, effective and fast response to any contingency.
The Technical Security Programme is part of ENAIRE's 2020 Flight Plan strategic framework and is in keeping with the National Cybersecurity Strategy and the requirements of the national government.
ENAIRE is the company belonging to the Public Works Department that provides air navigation services in Spain. It provides aerodrome control services at 21 airports, including the busiest in terms of air traffic, plus en-route and approach control, from five control centres: Barcelona, Madrid, Gran Canaria, Palma and Seville. In addition, 45 air traffic control towers receive communication, navigation and monitoring services from ENAIRE.
In 2018, ENAIRE handled 2.1 million flights to and from four continents (Europe, America, Asia and Africa), transporting 300 million passengers.
ENAIRE is the fourth most important European air navigation service provider, and, in a clear commitment to the Single Sky initiative, belongs to international partnerships such as SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) Joint Undertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, A6, iTEC, CANSO (Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation) and ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).
