GÉANT Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are established under the auspices of GÉANT in order to create an open forum where experts from its community exchange information, knowledge, ideas and best practices about specific technical or other areas of business relevant to the research and education networking community.

The GÉANT SIG – Information Security Management is a forum for interchanging knowledge and experiences on information security management topics.

 

The main aims of the SIG-ISM:

  • establish a community of security management professionals;
  • develop, maintain and promote a trust framework between NRENs based on international standards; 
  • promote the use of international security standards and share best practices for security management within NRENs; 
  • discuss and promote issues of information security management of particular interest to NRENs.

The disclosure of any information shared within the SIG follows the ISTLP code (https://www.surf.nl/en/services-and-products/surfcert/information-sharing-traffic-light-protocol/index.html)
