Organization: for the first time in its history the European Union has an agency responsible for managing and promoting information and communication technology (ICT) as a key success factor for the implementation of the Union’s policies in the area of justice, security and freedom. Today, the area of internal security is going through a major transformation, moving in part from the physical to the virtual world. It is more and more dependent not only on the physical resources available, but also on data and information. Moreover, in today’s globalised world it is not realistic to expect that a single state will be able to ensure its security alone. Therefore, this transformation can only be addressed through the provision of sophisticated, flexible and integrated systems and solutions for law-enforcement cooperation and integrated border management at EU level. Being a young organisation, eu-LISA has the unique opportunity to grow and develop its operations following industry standards and best-practices.
In this context, eu-LISA, the European Union Agency for the Operational Management of Large-Scale IT Systems in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, is called to increase the added value of ICT technology to the citizens of EU and through it to facilitate and proactively contribute to the success of the EU policies in the area of justice and home affairs and to support the Member States (MS) in their efforts for safer Europe.
