Poland joined SOG-IS.
Poland has joined a group of countries – signatories of Senior Official Group Information Security Systems (SOG-IS). Therefore in the future Poland will be able to self-assess and certify IT products in compliance with the international standard ISO/ IEC 15408 adopted by the Polish legal system.
This standard allows formal verification of information systems security. This will increase the level of cyber security and raise the competitive efficiency of Polish companies on the global market.
The agreement regulates the cooperation of the European Union and EFTA countries working on the coordination of certification policies for ICT products.
The agreement was concluded in 1997 in response to the EU Council Decision of 31 March 1992 on the security of information systems and following the Council Recommendation of 7 April 1995 on Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation.
