The existence of SIED was originally envisaged by the Law of the Information System of the Portuguese Republic in 1984. However, even before being activated, it was merged with the Military Information Service (SIM), originating the SIEDM (Strategic and Military Information Service). This was activated in 1997.

In 2004, the SIEDM lost its military component and was renamed SIED.[2]
