On 27 July 1990 the Commission of the European Communities submitted a proposal (COM(90) 314) for a Council Decision concerning an action plan in the field of information security (INFOSEC). The plan, proposed for a 24 month period, is designed to develop a global strategy providing the users of electronically stored, processed or transmitted information with protection of information systems against accidental or deliberate threats. The action lines comprise the development of an information security strategy framework; the analysis of information security requirements; solutions for immediate and interim needs; specifications, standardization and verification of information security; integration of technological and operational developments for information security within a general strategy; and integration of certain security functions in information systems. The amount attributed to this action is to be determined in the course of the annual budgetary procedure.
