Professor Helmbrecht presented ENISA's activities in the field of IT security standardisation (ETSI, CEN/CENELEC/ISO).

The SOG-IS agreement was produced in response to the EU Council Decision of March 31st 1992 (92/242/EEC) in the field of security of information systems, and the subsequent Council recommendation of April 7th (1995/144/EC) on common information technology security evaluation criteria.

The agreement was updated in January 2010. Participants in this Agreement are government organisations or government agencies from countries of the European Union or EFTA (European Free Trade Association), representing their country or countries.

The Management Commitee is the supreme body of the Agreement. All the signatory countries (Germany, Finland, France, Great Britain, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden) are represented.
