Director of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence visits eu-LISA

On 29 January a delegation of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence paid a visit to eu-LISA’s seat in Tallinn.

The meeting was about firming up actions of common interest, renewing our efforts towards closer cooperation and stepping up collaboration to a more practical level.

eu-LISA gave an overview of the on-going activities and key projects, focusing on the evolution of the three large-scale IT systems (Schengen Information System, Visa Information System and Eurodac) and the Agency’s contribution to combating foreign terrorist fighters, tackling irregular migration and providing support to the relevant registration procedures at national level. 

The two organisations agreed to proceed with cooperation on the topics of training, exchange of the best practices in cybersecurity and exchanging findings of the monitoring of relevant research initiatives.

It was proposed to identify the areas where practical collaboration could be developed, in particular, by enhancing expert level cooperation in the areas of common interest and identifying specific analytical products and expertise to be shared within the limits of the mandates of the organisations.

The Directors agreed on particular actions that would further develop the bilateral cooperation, i.e. carrying out a mapping exercise and appointing mutual contact points.
