Large-Scale IT Systems

​​​​eu-LISA is the European Agency responsible for the operational management of the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II), the Visa Information System (VIS) and Eurodac.


In order to fulfil this mandate, the agency must keep all IT systems under its responsibility functioning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to allow the continuous and uninterrupted exchange of data between national authorities using them.

eu-LISA is also mandated to ensure that it applies the highest levels of information security and data protection to the information entrusted to it, ensuring that personal information is treated fairly, lawfully and correctly, in full compliance with the relevant data protection principles and legislation in force.
