CHAʘS (Cyber Health and Awareness Operational System)

CHAʘS focuses on prevention and improvement of the health of Portuguese cyberspace through communications and alerts to reduce the cyber-attacks surface and support entities with the technical and procedures information.

Therefore, the CHAʘS platform in National CyberSecurity Centre is being developed to prevent vulnerability exploits in Public Administration, Critical Infrastructures and important systems available in Portuguese cyberspace. The platform will support multiple tasks, like sending alerts of vulnerable systems detected in cyberspace and new found software and hardware vulnerabilities, recommendations to improve the security of systems and infrastructures, and monitoring the systems and networks in each entity to generate periodically a “reliability indicator” at a national, sector and entity level.


The Project started in October 2014 and is still running.
Last review: October 2017.
